Sarah Jessica Hosts Art Talent Show

workofartmg-sx-top---bleckner-work-of-art_21350359937Sarah Jessica Parker is hosting a new art-world reality show, “Work of Art.” Painter Ross Bleckner says the program is a joke. He contends: ‘”Work of Art” completely mimics that other reality show, “Project Runway.” But I am sorry to say that making a dress is not the same as making a piece of art.’ Oh, yeah? I’d say that a skilled pattern-cutter is every bit as talented as somebody who sloshes oil on canvas — often, more so. The art world has been one of the last sanctuaries from the talent-show ethos that now dominates American culture. I’m amazed it stayed free of taint for so long.
