Can you believe that 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of The Heidelberg Project? We have some big plans on deck, starting with the official launch of Heidelberg 30 (HP 30), a program celebrating 30 years of artistic excellence. To help kick off our anniversary year the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation will match all donations $1 for $1 in the month of December. We are calling on all of our friends to help us meet this challenge and start off 2016 strong!
Marking one year for each month, HP 30 will reflect on what we have accomplished throughout our 30-year journey as we build our legacy. We will share intimate details of our amazing history of art and community, re-use and re-purpose joys and pain, triumphs and setbacks through a series of celebratory experiences and events. With your support we can make this celebration one for the record books.
We unofficially kicked off HP 30 beginning in August with “The Art of Tyree Guyton: A Thirty-Year Journey” retrospective exhibition by Tyree Guyton at the University of Michigan Museum of Art. Each month thereafter, we have highlighted monthly events including the Heidelberg Project’s participation in the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture in Shenzhen, China which opened December 4th. We are also working on exploring new partnerships, strengthening existing ones, and understanding what the legacy of the Heidelberg Project can be for the community. This work needs you to help make it happen!
We will continue to highlight monthly examples of artistic excellence through February 2018, a full 30 months of all things Heidelberg. Help us to educate future generations by bringing all of our stories and experiences to life. Click here to make a contribution to the Heidelberg Project today!
