Re: “Off target

My name is Maria Lopez. What Ms. Adelstein failed to report is: that I do meet some of the celebs in person, and they do tell me they keep my paintings. I have pictures of myself with them on my website. She also didnt report my credentials. I have a Master's degree from Boston University and I have worked at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC and have been educated at the Courtauld in London. Because of these credentials and my travels, I have contacts in NYC that help me attain access to some celebrities. I am one of the very few-known Chicana artists in the area and work trememdously hard painting and drawing daily, as my website demonstrates. I am working to build a life for myself as an artist and be a role model to other young Chicanas. I spoke directly to Cheech Marin's curator and she denied saying some of what this reporter wrote. She also told me, she plans to work on adding me into their collection since they have been seeking more Chicana artists. I talked openly with this reporter and she used none of the positive things I said and wrote this one-sided piece at the total expense of me and my career. I am one of the first artists to attempt celeb contact, the other I can think of is Andy Warhol, and any innovation is bound to bring some criticism. She also failed to mention, in any detail, my art. Which is heavily-academically influenced and beyond "colorful" which leads me to think she has not even seen my show at all. She wrote this skewed, one-sided article to malign some very hard-working, legitimate people. I'm confident that if she had done her job in investigating and reporting, she would have found celebs that would have legitimized me for this piece.
