Bravo's "Work of Art: the Next Great Artist" Premieres on Bravo in June, 2010
We thought it was a performance art stunt when we heard that our renowned artist, Nao Bustamante was a contestant on Bravo's latest stroke on the reality canvas, "Work of Art: The Next Great Artist." But it turns out to be real! We'll see just how real, when the show premieres on Bravo in June. Bustamante will be one of 14 aspiring artists to compete for a solo show at a nationally recognized museum and a generous cash prize. Is the art world ready for this conflux?
Is Nao Bustamante too real for Reality TV? "Watch and see what happens!"
