Heidelberg Project


The Heidelberg Project (HP) is an outdoor community arts organization located in the heart of Detroit. Founded in 1986 by local artist Tyree Guyton, the HP aims to inspire change through art, deploying it as a catalyst that builds on the culture of the community through unique programs, services, and events. Its programs include Art, Community and Environmental Education for K–12 students; Emerging Artists for up-and-coming artists; and Young Adults of Heidelberg, which partners with the community and other service organizations, to support community building within the arts and professional development for those ages 18–35.
