Dubbed a "Homeric epic of modern America" by Salon, HBO's The Wire is most 
aptly described not as a police drama or crime drama, but as a human drama. This 
artfully subversive series about Baltimore police and the criminals they 
target—crafted like a "visual novel" rather than a series of short stories, as 
most episodic dramas are,—explores the unlikely theme of the conflict between 
contemporary institutions and individuals, and what happens when the institutions 
themselves become paramount over the people who serve them. The Museum will 
screen an entire episode from season three. 

Tickets for this seminar will be on sale to Museum Members starting Monday, 
December 20, 2004. On sale to the general public on Monday, January 3, 2005.
