... butterflies & an acorn cap, seriously?)
Just when you think we're running out of reality... the LA Times art blog reveals: "Bravo and Sarah Jessica Parker are launching an art-themed reality tv series", produced by SJP's co 'Pretty Matches' & the group that did 'Top Chef'.
The show (unnamed as yet) will have 13 contestants competing for a gallery exhibition, a cash prize and a sponsored national museum tour. The artists will create works in the fields of sculpture, painting, photography, industrial design, 'and more'. (Gee, does this format seem familiar?...)
For those brave and artsy types...
the open casting calls:
10 a.m.-2 p.m. July 11-12
