A new reality TV show featuring the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden makes its debut tonight. The Exhibit premieres at 9:00 on MTV. The show focuses on seven people who will create art inspired by the existing Hirshhorn collection. The winner of the six-episode series gets 100-grand and a chance to display their original work at the museum. The Hirshhorn is hoping the The Exhibit will help to attract some younger visitors.
