Additional Details

The warm ALS thanks Tweel for her friendship and critical support of Lopez's work in her widely read and respected fashion and culture column in "Soho News." It contains a colored marker sketch of a face kissing a red stiletto heel shoe. An out and proud Nuyorican, LGBTQ advocate, and fashion icon, Lopez was one of the most influential image- and tastemakers of 1970s and 80's New York.
