Starving a dog to death in the name of 'art' - Honduras or Bizzaristan?

Dear Reader,

I am providing you in this blog entry with information forwarded by my good friend Bonnie Friedman. If true this is truly horrendous.

'In 2007, the 'artist' Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, tied him to a rope in an art gallery, and starved him to death. For several days, the 'artist' and the visitors of the exhibition have watched emotionless the shameful 'masterpiece' based on the dog's agony, until eventually he died. Does it look like art to you?

But this is not all... the prestigious Visual Arts Biennial of the Central American decided that the 'installation' was actually art, so that Guillermo Vargas Habacuc has been invited to repeat his cruel action for the biennial of 2008.


It's free of charge, there is no need to register, and it will only take 1 minute to save the life of an innocent creature.'

I found this youtube item on our Latino 'artist'.
