Aha Moment: The Heidelberg Project
Friday, January 11, 2008
With the fading American auto industry and its reputation for high crime, Detroit has become shorthand for urban decay. On two blocks of Heidelberg Street on Detroit’s east side, an artist and community organizer named Tyree Guyton decided to do something about it. He started transforming the street into his own crazy work of art. And his efforts made a big impression on Detroit resident Jenenne Whitfield. Produced by Zak Rosen.
