Youngstown, Ohio native (yes, as in the Bruce Springsteen song) Katie Hickman calls herself a “visual escapist,” but we think the term “School of Visual Arts grad” is also germane. This spring the Brooklyn transplant is working on “KT’s Greenroom,” an upcoming web talk show that features a variety of art advertisements, unconventional interviews, DJ sets, as well as special segments like beauty makeovers. In the spirit of this show which promises to be an open platform for people and artists to virtually discuss anything, we put her in a hot seat of our own.
