Following up our musical journey to Ohio in our last post we stay in the middle west for a road trip that is the subject of our latest upload to ChiTownView. In the summer of 1990 Bob & Mike two Chicago area musicians & artists take a road trip to Michigan. They are in search of the Ann Arbor boyhood trailer home of Iggy Pop from The Stooges. The trip continues on to Detroit where our intrepid explorers are looking for The Heidelberg Project an open air creation by outsider artist Tyree Guyton.

Starting in the late 1960's with The Psychedelic Stooges Iggy has been bringing his over the top brand of rock and roll to audiences ever since. Tyree Guyton began his Heidelberg Project in 1986. It is named for the street where this one of a kind art work covers several blocks. It has survived two partial demolitions and continues today.. Here is a link to it's website.
