Took a quick visit here between the wedding ceremony and reception. Was really impressed, enjoyed seeing everything and a place that should be kept going for many others to see.

Before the fires started there,it was a wonderful place to see Urban Art. Now,it looks like junk houses in a burnt up street. Not happy there anymore.

I really enjoyed visiting the Heildelberg Project. We decided to have a staycation and do things around the area that we had never done. Well worth it!

If you love innovation, and art/community action in the face of decay - GO SEE THE HEIDELBERG PROJECT! It is inspiring to see the evidence of artists coming together for the good a community. And it makes one feel connected.

This was an incredible thing to see in person. It is a powerful artistic response to neglected or abandoned properties and objects. It exemplifies the proverb - One man's trash is another man's treasure. It challenges both the condition and assumptions about its solution.

Unique array of misc odd junk affixed to houses/trees in neighborhood. Quirky at best. Artist friend took dozens of photos. Not my cup of tea. So truly in the eye of the beholder.

This area is full of rats and vermin crawling around all of the stuffed animals and garbage that is in the park, nailed to homes and strewn about. It's a total disgusting pit.

This place is worth a drive out to see. Very interesting street art. Many of the homes have signs saying not to take photographs so be careful of that.

Questions & Answers
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
