The Heidelberg Project said Guyton “has been affronted by some rather deceptive characters recently.”
“People are dumping money on him left and right but have no idea what he’s doing,” said a neighbor, whose house was burned in two arson fires targeting the Heidelberg Project. “It is pitiful.”
Although the nonprofit said its lone camera was destroyed in an arson, investigators set up hidden surveillance at the outdoor art project.
The world-famous Heidelberg Project, which spans across dozens of parcels and attracts as many as 50,000 people a year, owns just four of lots in the area.
“They are saying a lot to the public, but they haven’t been very cooperative,” a high-level fire official said.
The Heidelberg Project raised more than $50,000 late last year for security.
The house was the sixth to burn down at the world-famous art installation since November.
The fundraiser is aimed at protecting the installations of lost art.
The “Clock House” was the eighth house destroyed by an intentionally set fire since May 2.
“It’s time to fight back,” Guyton told me. “We gotta do something about this.”
