Faces of SOMArts–Nicci Yin

What Bay Area hood do you call home?

I am living near the Presidio.

What brings you to SOMArts?

For the summer, I wanted an art & community internship in a great city with lovely weather.

Describe the most enjoyable part of your experience at SOMArts today?

Feeling useful (stamping hundreds of postcards) and learning (I found out what taps and hex shafts were at the hardware store!)

What artist (painter, photographer, performer, writer, etc.) would you most like to have dinner with and why?

Tough question. Perhaps Barbara Kruger…I feel like I could learn so much from her (and she’s still alive so that makes it a greater possibility!)

If you could have any super power, what would it be a why?

I’d choose to be able to teleport. Home is a really long flight away (17 hours?) and when it gets too cold in NYC, I can pop back here to SF!
