The Heidelberg Project is an outdoor art installation that was created by artist and activist Tyree Guyton in the McDougall-Hunt areas of Detroit in 1986. It came about partly due to the downfall Guyton saw of the neighborhood he grew up in after the 1967 Detroit Riots. He also was disheartened by the violence in the area. So he started to paint houses with bright colors, and added to those found and random objects up to and including boats and cars. The Project has seen demollition by the city over the years, as well as destruction, vandalism and arson. What's left, besides the remaining surviving structures, are stories and pictures. I was fortunate enough to do a comprehensive photo essay of the area before much of the lastest wave of arson took place around 2013/14. The Heidelberg Project is an important piece of Detroit History, and one that we should never let be forgotten.
