Tyree Guyton, the artist behind Detroit’s Heidelberg project, opens his first solo show in three years tonight at the Inner State Gallery at the Eastern Market. The Heidelberg project, which transformed the vacant homes in Guyton’s childhood neighborhood into stunning sculptures of found objects, grew to be one of Detroit’s most visited attractions. Guyton’s new show, “Spirit,” comes after several of the art houses were destroyed by arson. Some of the pieces in “Spirit” have been salvaged from the burned-out remains, and Guyton says any damage from the flames is just part of the story.
