The Heidelberg Project

Simply, Tyree started this project/movement in 1986, by identifying his seemingly forgotten urban community on Detroit’s East Side as a place in great need of hope, inspiration, positive interaction, and artistic expression and sharing of ideas.  Ironically, these qualities were already part of the community, but the “lightening rod” with which to collect this energy was missing. With the power of a thunderbolt, Mr. Guyton transformed Heidelberg Street’s rubbish into Renoir and crack houses into quirky ghetto galleries.
