RICHMOND HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

Was it art or was it an eyesore?

If you've driven down Richmond Road in Richmond Heights in the past few months, you couldn't miss George Zeitzer's house. Not so much the house, but how it was decorated.

All kinds of objects were scattered around the front and side yards and most of it was painted pink. Zeitzer is an artist, and told Reporter Paul Orlousky that he left it up to people looking at his work to decide how it spoke to them, what they liked and didn't.

The city cited Zeitzer several times after numerous complaints to city hall. Finally, the city cracked down and ordered him to remove his displays.

"They did it under the pretense that the grass was too long," said Zeitzer. "So there you have it."

"Are you going to find another display space for it?" Orlousky asked. 

"Well, I just spent six days in jail, got out yesterday," Zeitzer said.

"For what?"

"I refused to post bond," Zeitzer replied.

The six days were credited at $50 a day and paid off a $300 bill due the court.

All of Zeitzer's art is now piled high in his back yard.
