Another fire on Heidelberg Street. Another house burns. This time it's fire at the Detroit Industrial Gallery.
Some might find it peculiar that a home should be considered a copyrighted work of art but that’s exactly what Tim Burke’s house is. This raw whimsical sculpture evolves day-by-day to the delight of its creator. His work is an unfolding story that is best appreciated by a contemplative walk about the grounds.
Most evenings and weekends you have the chance to discover the artist at work and to ask questions. Tim’s engaging stories complete the experience and offer great insight into the motivation behind this lived in work of art.
No tour is complete without a walk thru the surrounding neighborhood. Tim’s home stands like a flower in a beautiful field. That field is the work of Detroit artist Tyree Guyton, known as the Heidelberg project.
