The Heidelberg Project

heidelberg-project-detroit-200805-ssDetroit may be infamous for its decaying city blocks, but local artists are painting the town red…and green, blue, purple, and yellow.  The Heidelberg Project is an outdoor art project on Heidelberg St (west of Mt Elliott St) that has transformed a block of abandoned houses and junk into a canvas for colorful painting and sculptures.  The controversial project has been partially demolished by the City in both 1991 and 1999, yet it continues to inspire creativity amidst the dismal reputation of the city.
