0 Will 'Work of Art' Work for Us?

As both an artist an avid reality show viewer, I feel almost obligated to watch Bravo's new offering, Work of Art: The Next Great Artist (premiering June 9 at 11pm EST). It will be interesting to see whether art challenges and critiques can translate into entertaining television. I'm not expecting the drama to reach The Real Housewives level, but I still hope Work of Art won't disappoint.

Work of Art executive producer Sarah Jessica Parker was part of the selection committee that chose the 14 final artists from 2,000 applicants. Each week, contestants will be mentored by art auctioneer Simon de Pury, and then judged by New York gallery owners Bill Powers and Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn, and New York Magazine art critic Jerry Saltz. Host China Chow will then deliver the line: "Your work of art didn’t work for us," and one person will be sent home. The winning artist will receive $100,000 and a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum.
