The Heidelberg Project is on my top picks for places to take my out-of-Towner guests. Tyree Guyton, the artist of The Heidelberg Project, has created such a powerful experience. The artworks, expanding throughout an inner-city neighborhood in Detroit, is created from discarded and abandoned objects;...More

I biked here from Belle Isle, and found the place really interesting. One woman is renovating her house by collecting a dollar, in return for which you can write you name on her house!

It's hard to describe why this is so powerful, but I was very moved by seeing the run down houses and empty lots decorated and filled with industrial junk made beautiful and meaningful. It said, "Attention must be paid!" This is a community that is...More

Tyree Guyton and his grandfather Sam Mackey ("Grandpa Sam") created an outdoor art environment using discarded junk/garbage in the McDougall-Hunt neighborhood on the city's east side, just north of the city's historically African-American Black Bottom area. It was created in 1986 in the McDougall-Hunt neighborhood...More

We drove through the area because it was lightly raining. This is several city blocks which have had artwork installed--on various themes. There were lots of 'clocks' made of all types of materials, and some other more disturbing displays--a pile of shoes, a pile of...More

I am so happy this project lives on! With the changes in Detroit, I wonder how much longer something like this can survive but was really glad we went. A short LYFT ride from downtown and super cool. Go experience this!

Drove through it its about a block long and rather edgy art that was made from recycled junk. The area is a bit sketchy but if you visit during the day time its reasonably safe. But take a car or a cab DON NOT WALK...More

First, Detroit roads suck! There is plenty of parking it is in a neighborhood. It’s street parking and free. We went on a Saturday. There were plenty of people around. One of the the people was the artist/founder Mr. Guyton. I have never seen art...More

Truly something you will not find elsewhere. A full block of “stuff” rearrange and repurpose to express things words cannot. Had a short conversation with a wonderful and warm lady in the shed where you sign the guestbook.

Visited on the Chicago Bus Tour Snap Snap tour and found it to be kind of interesting. Lots of interesting "sculptures" to view!

Hi my name is Tim Burke, a lot of people are taking photographs of my artwork and studio Gallery on Heidelberg Street and misrepresenting my artwork as the artwork of the Heidelberg Project, which it's not, I have been on Heidelberg Street for 17 years I own at pink House it serves as my studio gallery, and as a copy written art installation with the United States copyright office, on the front of the pink House there're two signs that properly identify my business they read Detroit industrial gallery artist Tim Burke with my telephone number on them, I have also painted the words approximately 20 times on the pink House that this is not the Heidelberg Project, I also painted the words that I was making art in this house 28 years ago in big bold letters and printed my name right underneath that, I also own for lots next to my house which comprise my metal sculpture garden with the big giant red flower it is surrounded with a green fence made out of pellets. So this is not a question for anybody to answer this is a public service announcement, to say that there are two artists on Heidelberg Street it's a residential street that serves as a venue in a residential neighborhood much like the Detroit Institute of arts houses over 5000 artists, and each artist has a name tag to identify their artwork, my artwork is not the artwork of Tyree guyton or the height of project
