Tryouts for Artist Reality TV show this coming Thursday in Chicago

From the Chicago Tribune

Calling all contemporary artists. Casting scouts are coming to Chicago to search for emerging and semi-established artists to compete on a new reality show on Bravo, "Untitled Art Project." The program will bring together 13 aspiring artists to compete for a gallery show, a cash prize and a sponsored national tour. Sarah Jessica Parker -- along with her production company, Pretty Matches -- is involved with the development of the show. Though Parker won't be in Chicago for the casting, Bravo promises the tryouts will be judged by "known people in the art industry." Auditions will be July 16 at Sullivan Galleries at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Artists who work in one or many mediums -- including painting, sculpture, installation, video, photography and mixed-media -- are asked to bring, among other things, a portfolio, resumé and, if possible, any original and easily transportable artworks. "Just be yourself. It's really easy," says Nick Gilhool, the show's casting director. "We don't know what we're looking for. But we'll know it when we'll see it."

More information about the casting can be found on the Bravo site.....
