Sarah Jessica Parker's production company and the production team behind hits such as Project Runway and Top Chef have been talking about a similar series set in the art world, and this month they're finally casting.
Reads the news release: "In each episode of the series, contestants will create unique pieces 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 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 nationwide museum tour."
Casting calls will take place throughout the month in four cities, including Miami. Any interested artists should show up at Fredric Snitzer Gallery next Tuesday, July 14, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
