Huffington Post story update on the fire
The Saturday before Mothers Day was a fine day to visit The Heidelberg Project in Detroit.  A fellow art enthusiast, design colleague and cultural explorer friend and I made a plan to visit this urban jewel for the first time.  The recent fire at the OJ house gave us an opportunity to see the altered structure for ourselves.  An exhibit titled Kids In The Hood was open to the public at The House of Numbers and peaceful visitors marveled at the lively spirit, playful art and earnest renewal underway.  It really is quite difficult to put into words the beauty and wonder of The Heidelberg Project but it feels quite a bit like a Sociological Altar, magnetic and alive!  I'll be back again and again.
