When Tyree Guyton redeveloped trash from the streets of Detroit, Michigan and mixed in some art, poetic expressions, and socially consciousness images…the Heidelberg Project was born. Come learn more about this revolutionary art environment. Unwind, express your artistic spirit, and collaborate with others to create poetry from salvaged words and letters found from recycled newspapers, magazines, bumper stickers, and other local written art. And of course…there will be Motown music!
