The Heidelberg Project: 3D graffiti by Tyree Guyton

The Heidelberg Project was started in 1986 by Tyree Guyton. He decorated the houses in his neighborhood using paint and salvaged objects from the street, thereby turning a once-threatened area into a tourist sensation. With the Heidelberg Project, the Detroit-based artist has drawn attention to the plight of his home city’s forgotten neighborhoods. He calls his art 3D Graffiti, or Guerilla architecture. His vision was to transform the two block area in Detroit where his work is to be seen into a state of the art Cutural Village. I say, mission accomplished.
