On June 9, the Bravo channel will once again deliver grueling challenges, remarkable prizes—and of course—plenty of drama, as 14 artists compete in a new reality series. Workof Art: The Next Great Artist will follow 14 artists as they compete for a solo show at a renowned museum and a large cash prize.
The artists will test their skills using a variety of mediums to create original pieces of art for each week’s challenge. During a gallery showing at the end of each episode, a panel of art-world judges will critique and appraise each of the entries.
From a lingerie boutique owner who sculpts and prints to a fry cook who takes pictures when he’s not at work, the seven men and seven women featured in the new series range in age, background, and preferred medium. The list of contestants includes a filmmaker with no formal training, a devout Christian from the Midwest, a performance artist who’s been in the Sundance Film Festival, and an art college cum laude graduate. But they all have two things in common: They are accomplished artists, and they want to be Bravo’s next great artist.
Work of Art: The Next Great Artist premiers Wednesday, June 9 at 11/10 central on Bravo.For more information or to watch a preview of the new series, go to http://www.bravotv.com/work-of-art
