This Should Be Interesting

Bravo is introducing Work of Art, a reality competition that pits artists against each other.

Upon hearing this, I had many thoughts run through my head, and not many of them were kind.  While I love the idea of artists in American living rooms (and possibly making artists seem more approachable), I am under no delusion that the series won't focus on cat fights, personality differences, and the drama that stems from these as well as other things.

I'll watch it anyway, hoping for the best. Maybe they'll add a little art history and education, but I'm truly not holding my breath. The host of the show, Mr. Powers, said "Hopefully, this show creates a bigger audience for art as a whole".  One can hope.
