Detroit's 'Heidelberg Project' Endures http://kccu.org/post/art-or-junk-detroits-heidelberg-project-endures An outdoor art installation in Detroit made from blighted homes and objects is stirring up controversy again. A rash of arsons in the past seven months have destroyed four of the Heidelberg Project's signature homes. But after nearly 30 decades of working on this project and facing resistance, artist Tyree Guyton is determined to make more art.

Inside what looks like an abandoned office building are walls covered by graffiti. There are tattooed people wearing baseball caps and jeans. Three 20-year-old men holding mics get ready to bust out some elaborate dance moves.<p>It may seem like a hip-hop show, but it's actually church.<p>While Evans preaches to about 100 people on a given Saturday, he has no seminary training and dropped out of school in the 7th grade.
