  • I loved our visit to the Heidelberg Project. We took a young friend who is from Berlin and had heard about it on a cold winter day. It was impactful and I found it moving. It is above and beyond the typical & made our friend very thoughtful about this alternate view of America, as well. When you’re there step I to the indoor space and purchase something or leave a donation. The people who are staffing the project are happy to talk to you and exchange ideas. This is a unique artistic expression and deserves to be supported.
  • After all these years, Tyree is still steady at work as curator and caretaker of this experience. It was great to see him on site wishing happy holidays to all the attendees on a weekend afternoon. Fun for a jaunt, enough substance for a deep dive if you have the time and interest.
