The Heidelberg Project

Detroit, Michigan



Now in its 25th year, the project is an open-air art environment created by founder and artistic director Tyree Guyton, who uses discarded everyday objects to create a two-block area of color, symbolism, and intrigue in an eastside neighborhood. This funding helps the project strengthen its organizational capabilities and develop a strategic business plan for expansion.
