OH MY GAWD.

I HAVE TO BE ON THIS!!!!

IN DEVELOPMENT:

AMERICAN ARTIST (working title)

Producer, Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Sarah Jessica Parker and her production company Pretty Matches, will team with the Emmy-nominated Magical Elves and Eli Holzman, to produce "American Artist" (wt), an hour long creative competition series between contemporary artists. "American Artist" will bring together aspiring artists to compete for a gallery show, a cash prize and a sponsored national tour. In each episode, contestants will create unique works of art highlighting art's role in everyday life, while they compete and create in a range of disciplines including sculpture, painting, photography and industrial design (to name a few). In working beyond their preferred mediums, artists will have to adapt quickly to changes in order to succeed. Completed works of art will be appraised by a panel of top art world figures including fellow artists, gallerists, collectors, curators and critics. The finalists' work will be showcased in a nation-wide museum tour.

this weekend...
