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.
