The Heidelberg Project

Be very careful! Our car was broken into and backpacks stolen. We were only gone for a minute. All of this happened in front of several of the local residents.

I felt remarkably at peace walking around this oddly beautiful and thought-provoking part of the city. It's hard to believe you're even in Detroit when you immerse yourself in the art and experience the calmness of it all.

The Heidelberg Project is alive and well. They were working on the weekend we visited. Wonderful!

This is a MUST SEE, Not publicized enough. While walking around and viewing we ran into the creator, Tyre, a very interesting gentlemen who filled us in on the continuing work at the site. He has an amazing vision.
