The area is very interesting. While I like modern art, and try to keep an open mind, but its hard not to see it as a lot of garbage piled up. There are a few pieces in there that I enjoyed, but most of it...More

This was a very interesting stop. People are repurpose sing garbage an objects to be artistic installations. Come here if you want to take great pictures in Detroit. This is a great place to take pictures of urban American detritus.

An imaginative art installation made of discarded objects by a resident of the neighborhood - Tyree Guyton. Worth a visit and a wander around. Quite interesting

It's a wildly imaginative art installation made of discarded everyday objects, taking up more than a city block. Unique!

This is a neat area to visit to appreciate how one man's trash is another's artwork. It is very close to Eastern Market and something to see if you are in the area.

Hi my name is Tim Burke, a lot of people are taking photographs of my artwork and studio Gallery on Heidelberg Street and misrepresenting my artwork as the artwork of the Heidelberg Project, which it's not, I have been on Heidelberg Street for 17 years I own at pink House it serves as my studio gallery, and as a copy written art installation with the United States copyright office, on the front of the pink House there're two signs that properly identify my business they read Detroit industrial gallery artist Tim Burke with my telephone number on them, I have also painted the words approximately 20 times on the pink House that this is not the Heidelberg Project, I also painted the words that I was making art in this house 28 years ago in big bold letters and printed my name right underneath that, I also own for lots next to my house which comprise my metal sculpture garden with the big giant red flower it is surrounded with a green fence made out of pellets. So this is not a question for anybody to answer this is a public service announcement, to say that there are two artists on Heidelberg Street it's a residential street that serves as a venue in a residential neighborhood much like the Detroit Institute of arts houses over 5000 artists, and each artist has a name tag to identify their artwork, my artwork is not the artwork of Tyree guyton or the height of project
