Future seasons[edit]

Work of Art’s renewal status was unclear as the second season concluded: In late December 2011, Judge Bill Powers wrote that “We will have to see if our work of art worked for Bravo.”[25]Jerry Saltz, another Work of Art judge, announced via his Vulture blog that he would not return for a third season of the show.[26] The uncertainty as to Work of Art’s fate on Bravo was somewhat resolved when the Gallerist reported the show’s cancellation in August 2012.[27][28] The LA Times reported that while Bravo would not officially confirm the cancellation, “a source close to the channel said it was “unlikely” that the show would return for a third season on Bravo.”[29]Work of Art’s producers as of August 2012 were approaching other television networks in the hopes of continuing the show’s run elsewhere.[27]
