Artist: Tyree Guyton
Title: Heidelbergology; 2 + 2 = 8
Heidelbergology; 2 + 2 = 8 consists of a series of modules created with elements from the canvas of the internationally acclaimed Heidelberg Project (Detroit), creatively reassembled by the artist. These spirited installations composed of salvaged items, act as poignant examples of the resilient tenacity that inspired Guyton to reclaim his Detroit neighborhood over thirty years ago. This collaboration with SiTE:LAB for ArtPrize 2018 is the first time that original elements of this scale from the Heidelberg Project can be seen outside of Detroit, marking an historical moment for the city Grand Rapids.
