The Wire is a reality tv show similar to Project Runway where artists are the contestants on a show that will ultimately land their work in a prestigious art gallery if they win. Each week is a new challenge using different materials and each week someone goes home. There are guest judges, guest clients, drama, fights, and tears. There are bruises and empty coffee cups as these talented artist fight to create the next biggest masterpiece. Although every week presents new problems and challenges, especially with the medium of art they must work with that week, what remains consistent throughout the show is that the final 3 contestants must make their finally gallery pieces out of wire. Hence the name of the show.
