Heidelberg Project.

The Heidelberg Project

Tyree Guyton's colorful junkscape of art-encrusted houses has run afoul of Detroit's politicians in the past, but today is a paragon of post-suburban visionary art.

The polka dot house is the only one left in the photos posted. There are a lot of new pieces of artwork to view. This place is definitely worth a drive to visit.

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....
