"Art From The Ashes: Detroit's Heidelberg Project"

After the decline of the auto industry, riots, rampant crime, and urban decay, the city of Detroit has been struggling to find a new identity. Looking to inspire change, artist Tyree Guyton began to use paint and found objects to transform 2 city blocks into a provocative and colorful art installation. The art project on Heidelberg Street has since become a mecca for artists and stands as a symbol of Detroit's ongoing artistic renaissance.

Commissioned by HDNet for the VIEWFINDER segment of HDNet's "World Report".
