Stop Guillermo Habacuc Vargas, a so called 'artist', from receiving the award ' Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008'
This link below takes you to a petition that is in Spanish. I understand that most people I send this to will not read Spanish so I will explain what it is all about.
A so called 'artist' called Guillermo Habacuc Vargas from Costa Rica has recently been invited to receive an award ' Bienal Centroamericana Honduras 2008'
Vargos was allowed, by a Costa Rican gallery, to exhibit a stray dog that he had taken from the street. A piece entitled 'you are as you are', this dog was tied up by a rope and left there to starve underneath the title of the piece written just out of reach from him in dogfood stuck to the wall. This defenseless dog starved to death in this gallery as onlookers took in the exhibition without intervention.
I find this tragic event disgusting and unacceptably cruel, as I am sure many of you will. THIS IS NOT ART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If you find this hard to believe you can view the exhibition at the link below.
Please help stop this man from being rewarded for such a disgusting, cruel deed and sign the petition.
1. Cruelty to defenseless animals is not exceptable
2. Cruelty is NOT art!
3. People should not be rewarded for cruel acts.
