Heidelberg Project

One thing I love about the Heidelberg Project is the way the artist, Tyree Guyton, uses common, ordinary things like pennies or stuffed animals.

For example, he has taken junky old tires (that are usually a symbol of blight), painted them like a Walt Disney fever dream, and placed them in strips, mounds and unexpected places.

The tires react with the changing light, especially at night, to render differently, moment by moment.

The colorful repetition allows them to recede softly into a background.

And I like how they help create unexpected moments, like our little warbird to the right.

As detailed  here,  someone is trying to burn down the Heidelberg Project.  You can buy a Heidelberg Project print from me, and I will donate the proceeds back to the Heidelberg Project to help fund security.
