A quarter century ago, a young man armed with a paintbrush and a broom set out to change his community. Today Tyree Guyton, the founder and artist of the Heidelberg Project, is recognized around the world for demonstrating the power of art as a catalyst for change.
Although it has garnered world acclaim and is one of the top three cultural attractions in the city of Detroit, the Heidelberg Project remains a hidden gem undiscovered by many metro Detroiters. Even those who frequently pass by may wonder what the purpose is behind a 2-block area filled with polka dots, splashy colors and discarded objects. This is your chance to learn the meaning and history behind the Heidelberg Project, particularly as it relates to art, community, and the environment.
