Sculptor and SVA alumnus Michelle Matson (BFA 2005 Fine Arts) makes her reality TV debut on Wednesday, October 12 on the season premiere of Bravo’s Work of Art: The Next Great Artist. Along with 13 other up-and-coming artists, Matson will engage in a series of creative challenges while trying to avoid elimination, competing for a grand prize of $100,000 cash and a solo show at the Brooklyn Museum.
Since graduating from SVA, the 29-year-old Matson has worked for Zach Feur Gallery and Elizabeth Dee Gallery, served as an assistant for artist Josephine Meckseper, and currently works as an assistant for hyper-realist painter Marilyn Minter. In fact, it was Minter’s husband, Bill Miller, who dared Matson to apply for a spot on Work of Art, she recently told MyCentralJersey.com.
