The final contestants have been sent home to prepare a full solo exhibition. Climaxing in a large-scale gala opening at the Brooklyn Museum, the finalists present their collections to the judging panel to determine who will be "The Next Great Artist."
China and Simon take the remaining artists out of their comfort zone, to a quaint town in the Hudson Valley. The artists wander the streets, meet the locals and seek inspiration from a slower-paced lifestyle. They are instructed to create an undated version of Americana using only materials sourced from the town.
Simon takes the artists on a field trip through the streets of New York City. After turning a corner, a row of empty tables and easels is revealed -- one for each artist. In the ultimate battle of commerce vs. "high art," the artists will work in teams to create a minimum of one piece of art that they must sell to the public, but that is also worthy of presenting in a gallery show the following day. The winner of the challenge will receive a cash prize; in addition to keeping the money they earned selling their work(s). Jeanne Greenberg-Rohaytn returns to the judging panel this week.
The artists must utilize one automobile component from a Fiat 500 and transform it into a piece of art. From utilizing the engine block, being inspired by the facade, or even using the leather seating as a canvas, the contestants have total artistic freedom. Performance artist and automotive designer Liz Cohen joins as guest judge.
