Trash vs Art?? People were sitting on the porch, and another man was sweeping. Viewing the piles of things makes you wonder...is one person's trash another person's art?

The Heidelberg Project is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. Tyree and his neighbor were sitting outside and he was painting. Friendly and oh such heartwarming positivity. Definitely worth the trip to Detroit just to see this. I've been smiling all day from what a cool experience this was. Also inspired to go make some art....

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.
