So, You Think You Can Paint? is at once a project to take the anthropological pulse of the city of Chicago where artists, hobbyists, enthusiasts, professionals, and naysayers have a leveled playing field to exhibit their work; and second an irreverent look at the competitive framework network television promotes. The entire project is a timely reinterpretation of the reality judging show So You Think You Can Dance (Fox July 20, 2005 – present mixed with a dash of Art Star (Gallery HD June 1, 2006 – July 19, 2006)  and a pinch of Work of Art (Bravo 2010 - present).  Just like those unscripted displays of genius, hidden talent, and atrocity on television, what happens next is entirely up to the participants with paintings, the judges, the camera...and only at Spoke can you be involved.

Anyone can bring in up to three paintings - any subject, size, or format accepted.
Fill out an entry form (download now, or pick up a copy at Spoke).
A panel of guest judges will critique your work, the entire event will be filmed, and the best will be hung in the show.
Award winners will have the opportunity to have the work travel to compete in “So You Think You Can Paint? Tampa Bay Season Two!”
Pick up work at designated times.
