In 1986, Tyree Guyton began transforming his blighted childhood neighborhood in Detroit with art. Vacant lots became his canvas; abandoned homes were embellished with a vibrant, colorful palette, rising above Heidelberg St. as enormous sculptures. With continued community support, the Heidelberg Project incorporated and eventually become a non-profit, continuing the mission of transforming neighborhoods through art. A portion of proceeds from the Heidelberg Project Wallpaper Collection directly benefit the Heidelberg foundation, funding art outreach and various creative programming. Reinterpreting the works of Tyree at the Heidelberg Project as wallpaper patterns has been an exciting process for us, and we hope you enjoy the energy and creativity that was inspired by this beguiling arts district in Detroit.
