The Heidelberg Project is an outdoor art environment in the heart of Detroit and a nonprofit community arts organization whose mission is to improve the lives of people and the neighborhood through non-traditional means. Founded in 1986 by Detroit artist Tyree Guyton, it utilizes everyday discarded materials to provoke thought and discussion on consumption and greed, while empowering residents to discover their own artistry and to take ownership of their community. The Heidelberg Project is recognized as one of the most influential art environments in the world.
Commissioned by Power House Productions, Nari Ward has created a permanent site-specific installation at Ride it Sculpture Park, the skatepark located along the E. Davison Expressway. Ward’s work, G.O.A.T. anchors the northeast corner of the park, establishing a neighborhood landmark prominently featuring the humble, ruminant animal, the goat, atop a monumental industrial crate tower. As throughout his work, Ward’s use of everyday, unassuming objects take on a transformative life of their own through his skillful handling, sharp wit and vision.
