DETROIT (AP) — A public art project in Detroit that was built in the shell of a decaying neighborhood is burning down, bit by bit.

Authorities are investigating at least eight fires at the installation known as the Heidelberg Project, but authorities haven't named any suspects.

But they believe someone is targeting the quirky art project, and they don't know why.

The project is an interactive, outdoor sculpture park and includes quirky objects such as shoes, clocks, vinyl records, stuffed animals and other found and discarded objects. Heidelberg Project founder Tyree Guyton isn't talking to the media, but has vowed to carry on and restore the exhibit.
