A man who founded the Heidelberg Project will soon be taking down his iconic art in Detroit


Tyree Guyton has spent the past 30 years creating art along a section of the neighborhood.  He took what some would consider trash and turned it into treasures.


Guyton tells 7 Action News that it's time to reveal the Heidelberg Project 3.0.

Fires have destroyed several of the abandoned homes in the neighborhood.  Throughout the years, some of the houses were turned into art.

It's not clear whether any of these crimes have anything to do with the new transformation.

According to a Heidelberg spokesperson, the new details will be revealed in the next few days.
