Party Animal House Before Fire

Photo Gallery
For 28 years, Tyree Guyton, along with the local children in his neighborhood, has been painting and decorating the streets and houses on his block in East Side Detroit. His work eventually evolved into The Heidelberg Project. Of the ten vacant houses Guyton turned into art objects, six have been burned out in the past year, with arson suspected. The latest to be destroyed--on March 7--was the Party Animal House. Here is the Party Animal House before it was gutted. (photo: Elijah Wallechinsky) For more photos of the Heidelberg Project, see
