In addition to a shout out on our social media sites, you and a guest will be invited to attend the unveiling celebration on Heidelberg Street following completion of Tyree's new vision. Here, he will reveal the new use and name of the art installation where the OJ House once stood - and hopefully some of his newest dance moves! Yet another new beginning.
