The Heidelberg Project is art, energy, and community.

It’s an open-air art environment in the heart of an urban community on Detroit’s East Side. Tyree Guyton, founder and artistic director, uses everyday, discarded objects to create a two block area full of color, symbolism, and intrigue. Now in its 29th year, the Heidelberg Project is recognized around the world as a demonstration of the power of creativity to transform lives.

Thank you for visiting and thank you for supporting the arts.


“I strive to be a part of the solution. I see and understand how order is needed in the world and in our individual lives. My experiences have granted me knowledge of how to create art and how to see beauty in everything that exists. ”

– Tyree Guyton

FINAL DAY: Vote HP for USA Today's Best Art District

We're in the running for Best Arts District in USA TODAY's 10Best Readers' Choice awards and we need YOUR help to take it home! Vote once per day (on your phone, computer, and tablet) until March 2nd to help us take home the ribbon. We are up against some MAJOR art districts, but no one has supporters like the HP! Rally!


Stay Savvy: Car Break-Ins Reported

In recent weeks, 3 cars have been targeted by thieves. As in any urban setting, please DO NOT leave valuable items visible in your vehicle! Secure items in your trunk whenever possible. Additionally, please only park on Heidelberg (south side of the street) and Ellery streets, or where a red and white parking sign is posted. This helps us to monitor the area more easily, and also alleviates traffic congestion in our residential neighborhood. Thank you for your help, and see you soon!


Give $4 & the EFF will make it $5!

The HP is thrilled to share that for every $4 YOU donate, the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation will donate $1, too! Donate NOW to stretch your dollar further this year!
