I visited The Detroit Historical Museum over the weekend, and I saw the coolest found object dress there. It's from the Heidelberg Project in Detroit. There were a couple Barbie heads on the back shoulders, but I couldn't get a good picture of them.
The Heidleberg project is "an open-air art environment in the heart of an urban community on Detroit’s East Side. Tyree Guyton, founder and artistic director, uses everyday, discarded objects to create a two block area full of color, symbolism, and intrigue. Now in its 23rd year, the Heidelberg Project is recognized around the world as a demonstration of the power of creativity to transform lives."
