Art Reality Show to Air on Bravo

sjp.jpgUpdate on Sarah Jessica Parker’s art reality show: Parker’s show, with the working title, “American Artist,” will debut this year on cable television channel Bravo. Here’s what the station has to say about the series:

“ ‘American Artist’ will bring together aspiring artists to compete for a gallery show, a cash prize and a sponsored national tour. In each episode, contestants will create unique works of art highlighting art’s role in everyday life, while they compete and create in a range of disciplines including sculpture, painting, photography and industrial design (to name a few). In working beyond their preferred mediums, artists will have to adapt quickly to changes in order to succeed. Completed works of art will be appraised by a panel of top art world figures including fellow artists, gallerists, collectors, curators and critics. The finalists’ work will be showcased in a nation-wide museum tour.”

    This idea sounds good, but there ain’t no shortcuts to a successful art career. It take years of diligent work and good business acumen. With two million artists in the work force (NEA report 2008) real artists will understand that the art life is a marathon and not a sprint. Art careers require constant maintenance.

    Wow! That sounds wonderful. If it’s anything like Project Runway and Shear Genius the contestants are sure to be put under a lot of stress. I don’t think I could perfrom on command, I give the prospective contestants/artists a lot of credit for auditioning. I will enjoy watching!!!
