Magic Trash: A Story of Tyree Guyton and His Art

by J.H. Shapiro

When Tyree Guyton returns to his Detroit neighborhood he finds a decaying, crime-ridden area that was no longer his home. In an effort to heal his community and using his gift for creating art out of whatever he can find, Tyree upcycles his lost neighborhood into the Heidelberg Project, an interactive sculpture park visited by millions each year.
