All,

I hardly ever send out petitions but this is absolutely horrendous and needs to be stopped.

If I had my way I would fly down to South America, grab the artist and any sickoos that are in the museum, tie them up, and parade spectators as they slowly starved to death.

Please sign the petition so that this doesn't happen again.

Just relized that I could not post the info that I have, so here is the jist of the it.

In 2007, the 'artist' Guillermo Vargas Habacuc, took a dog from the street, he tied him to a rope in an art gallery, starving 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. 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.



Let's STOP HIM!!!!!

this made me sick. i did a little google search on him and found a comment this 'artist' made on his myspace. the comment was posted on this site http://guillermohabacucvargas.blogspot.com/


Here is a part of his original [most recent] statement:"Hello everyone. My name is Guillermo Habacuc Vargas. I am 50 years old and an artist. Recently, I have been critisized for my work titled "Eres lo que lees", which features a dog named Nativity. The purpose of the work was not to cause any type of infliction on the poor, innocent creature, but rather to illustrate a point. In my home city of San Jose, Costa Rica, tens of thousands of stray dogs starve and die of illness each year in the streets and no one pays them a second thought.

Now, if you publicly display one of these starving creatures, such as the case with Nativity, it creates a backlash that brings out a big of hypocrisy in all of us. Nativity was a very sick creature and would have died in the streets anyway.
Can you beleive the nerve of this guy trying to justify what he did. Rot in hell.
