The Heidelberg Project: An Unusual Artists’ Colony

Created by artist Tyree Guyton, the Heidelberg Project is an outdoor initiative to develop some of the abandoned homes into an artists’ colony of community gardens, museums, galleries and more. It is located in a neighborhood that began to deteriorate after the 1967 riots.
