Using art to provoke thought, promote discussion, inspire action and heal communities...

The Heidelberg Project offers a forum for ideas, a seed of hope, and a bright vision for the future. It's about taking a stand to save forgotten neighborhoods. It's about helping people think outside the box and it's about offering solutions. It's about healing communities through art - and it's working!

We have been one of the creative pillars of Detroit for a number of years. We were founded out of a need to bring the arts alive. We have continued to grow with the help of our donors, patrons, artists and volunteers that make our mission possible.

In this section you will find all that you need to know about our people, mission, history and frequently asked questions. If you want to learn more about our organization, just follow the links for more information or call our offices at (313)974-6894.


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 28th 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.
