Heidelberg Project

For art lovers, the Heidelberg Project is a must-see place. This outdoor art project aims to transform and improve the lives of local people through the power of art. It was created in 1985 by artist Tyree Guyton who, encouraged by his grandfather, slowly began reclaiming abandoned lots and buildings and transforming them into outdoor art installations. The Heidelberg Project has received a Rudy Bruner Award for Urban Excellence in 2005, was featured in the W magazine, and was one of the 15 projects that represented US at the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2008.
