Work of Art

The finale of Bravo's first-year reality show Work of Art: The Next Great Artist drew a series-high 1.48 million viewers Thursday -- and it looks like a renewal is not far away.

Art, which pits contemporary artists against each other for the chance at a solo exhibition, saw a 21 percent jump in the season finale from the previous week. The Sarah Jessica Parker-produced series averaged 1.12 million throughout its first season.

Will Work of Art overcome elitist stigma?

Abdi Farah, who was crowned the winner of Season 1, will begin showcasing his art at the Brooklyn Museum on Saturday.

While Bravo's casting site is already searching for applicants for Season 2, a rep for the series says there has been no official pick-up yet.
