Heidelberg Project Fires
In a photo from Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2013 at the Heidelberg Project in Detroit, fire tape is seen surrounding the aftermath of the fire at the House of Soul. There have been at least eight fires since early May leading to questions about who might be targeting the installation and why they want to burn it down. Founder and artistic director Tyree Guyton and his compatriots vow to carry on, make more art and overcome the assault on his vision, yet worry threatens the whimsy as the fires snuff out building after building.
