EXPLORED! "Using art to provoke thought, promote discussion, inspire action and heal communities...

 

The Heidelberg Project is art, energy and community. It’s an open-air art environment in the heart of an urban community on Detroit’s East Side. Tyree Guyton, founder and artistic director uses everyday, discarded objects to create a two block area full of color, symbolism and intrigue. Now in its 21st year, the Heidelberg Project is recognized around the world as a demonstration of the power of creativity to transform all those whose lives it touches.

The Heidelberg Project offers a forum for ideas, a seed of hope, and a bright vision for the future. It's about taking a stand to save forgotten neighborhoods. It's about helping people think outside the box and its about offering solutions. It's about healing communities through art - and it's working! " , Text taken from www.heidelberg.org - please go there and take a look around, buy a book or shirt or make a donation. Tyree and his group have done some amazing things with abandoned houses and discarded items, turning them into art.
