Join the cast of Bravo's contemporary art reality show

Rumors of a Sarah Jessica Parker-produced reality TV show – think Project Runway for visual artists – have finally been confirmed, and a round of regional casting calls held over the next two weeks will determine the series' first round of participants. Aspiring Tampa-based contenders can head to Miami for next Tuesday's try-outs at Fredric Snitzer Gallery in Wynwood. Just fill out the 23-page application (actual question: “What annoys you about other artists?”) and prep your portfolio (including “any original artwork that is easily transportable”).

The application warns that contestants will need to have a current passport and submit to all medical and psychological examinations deemed necessary. So bring the drama, but leave the crazy at home.
