These days there are so many choices to take in art and culture in Detroit, but few will offer the   distinctly democratic home grown vision that The Heidelberg project does. 
I've been inspired by their unique counter cultural Socio-Political presence for many years and am thrilled to share the following news on their upcoming annual fundraiser 
It’s All About the “D”: Graffiti will take place from 6:00PM to 10:00PM on Thursday, November 15,  2012. The raw-gone-renovated Fine Arts Theater is set to re-open its doors at 2952 Woodward, welcoming guests with live graffiti demonstrations. Guests will also enjoy appetizers, dinner, and dessert provided by local favorites Slows BBQ, Zingermans, Vinsetta Garage, Avalon Bakery and others.  Music by Star Traxx and this year's desired attire, dubbed "Street-Wear Chic," are sure to combine for an evening of fun and friends, “Heidelberg style.
Ticket sales benefit the wide array of Art production, education, and community development programs offered by the HP, and prices range from $75 - $350.  For additional ticket information, please contact     Amanda Sansoterra at (313)974-6894 or visit for online ticket sales. 

I'll be sure to post photos and highlights, but hope to see many of you there!

P.S. - This was one of the most unique, well organized and diverse cultural events I've attended in Detroit.  It had the kind of vibe I've seen in New York, Chicago and LA so keep your ear to the ground for the next Heidelberg event peeps.
