Artist, Tyree Guyton, has used art to breath new life into the run down, impoverished Detroit community of McDougall-Hunt. Since 1986, he began transforming vacant houses with recycled materials, found objects and paint. Other artists and community members
have since joined in, making this neighbourhood look like one big, crazy art installation. Videos on the HP website take you beyond the colourful chaos, to look at the transformative power of art. Inspiring.

I totally agree! I might just have to go on a little road trip to visit this one day.
