Detroit’s Heidelberg Project to be Dismantled

Three decades and millions of visitors later, the Heidelberg Project has certainly made its mark on Detroit.

But will it soon be a thing of the past?

According to CBS Detroit, the art installation’s creator, Tyree Guyton, says he has plans to dismantle the Heidelberg and turn transform it into something new.

Reworked as the Heidelberg 3.0, Guyton (60) says the project will move forward as a community venture.

“After 30 years, I’ve decided to take it apart piece-by-piece in a very methodical way, creating new realities as it comes apart,” Guyton told The Detroit Free Press. “I gotta go in a new direction. I gotta do something I have not done before.”

The Heidelberg Project, which was first established by Guyton in 1986 as a way to turn his run-down neighborhood into an interactive art piece, averages about 200,000 visitors a year.
