‘Work of Art’ Contestants To Design Penguin Cover

work of art.pngThe third episode of the new Bravo reality series, Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, will have a literary bent tonight. Contestants will be tasked with designing the cover for a Penguin book.

The twelve remaining artists, who are competing for a $100,000 and a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum, will do their best to make a book cover that “captures the spirit of Penguin – classic yet cutting edge,” according to Penguin President Kathyrn Court, in the press release. Several Penguin staffers participated in the episode, and Court herself got to address them.

No word on what the book is, but the winning design will be published tomorrow and available in bookstores. Judge Jerry Saltz has been doing recaps of each episode on NYMag.com, so check in there tomorrow to hear his take. And then check in here to see if we think he’s got a point.
