Tyree Guyton to speak at U-M

Share on Nextdoor

Speaking of Tyree Guyton, next week the artist will make his first major public appearance since the Heidelberg Project arsons started by giving a lecture at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor. (Cue yet another "Is it art or an eyesore?" debate in the comments section below.)

Guyton will discuss new plans for the site, its history, and plans for a new museum. Guyton's wife and Heidelberg Project director Jenenne Whitfield will also speak, along with U-M School of Social Work professor Larry Grant. "Inextinguishable — A Conversation with Detroit Artist Tyree Guyton" starts at 2 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 20 at U-M's East Conference Room (4th floor) at the Horace H. Rackham Building, 915 E. Washington St., Ann Arbor.
