Day Job: Museum Guard

Guyton's first job after moving to NYC was as a security guard at the Dia Center for the Arts. He clearly took the job lightly, stating, "I stood around all day guarding art." Soon after, he began experimenting with flatbed scanners, leading to his successful exhibitions at museums like The Whitney.
