Okay, here's the deal. Bravo has a new television show called "Work of Art," searching for the next great American artist. It airs on Wednesday nights. Set your DVRs!

What this blog is all about is watching the show, and then taking on the challenges posed to the artists on the show each week. Any artist is welcome to participate. This is how it's all going to go down:

1.) Watch "Work of Art" on Bravo every Wednesday night.

2.) After the show (either really late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning) read this blog for the adapted challenge. *Sometimes the challenges posed on the show are not directly transferable to us viewers at home. We'll be doing the same challenges as the contestants on the show, but we may have to adapt a little to the fact that WE'RE not on the show.

3.) Do the challenge! This is a chance for some seriously creative homework. A chance to work outside of your comfort zone or usual medium. A chance to expand upon your work as well as your work ethic, as there is a deadline!

4.) Each week, submit 1-2 photos of your finished work as well as a short blurb describing your work to: lindseysmo(at)gmail(dot)com NO LATER THAN 11:00AM EVERY MONDAY!

5.) By Monday night (Tuesday morning at the latest), see everyone's work from each week's challenge RIGHT HERE!

6.) Feel free to leave comments, spark discussions, or just browse the amazing work we're all putting into the world.

This is a chance to take on an amazing challenge and really inspire your work. And all submissions will be credited to the artist.

If you're interested, shoot an email to Lindsey at: lindseysmo(at)gmail(dot)com with the title, "I'm Interested!" In the body of the email, leave your full name and a link to a website where you'd like to be credited. That's it! You'll receive an email confirming your interest and probably a couple of emails here and there with updates about your participation on this site.

Thanks for checking us out, and we hope to see you participating!

P.S. It should be noted that this idea sparked from a one Ms. Becky Cochrane, who for three seasons has performed a similar challenge with Project Runway. For three seasons she (as well as some other Internet contestants) have completed all of the Project Runway challenges by sewing the fashions for the ultimate diva: Barbie. You can see her "LJ Runway Monday" fashions on her blog (under the tag "fashion") HERE.


  1. I don't have cable (or a TV). Can I still play, using the adapted challenges without benefit of having seen the show?

  2. Absolutely! You might be at a teeny bit of a disadvantage, but a challenge is a challenge, right?! I'll do my absolute best to include all helpful information based on each week's episode. And you can get clips (if not full episodes), as well as recaps and extras over here:
