It disgusts me to even think about this.
An "artist" from Costa Rica, named Guillermo Habacuc Vargas, use a starved dog as a "work of art". As part of an installation, the stray was tied to a corner of a gallery and then starved to death. After the event, the artist was chosen to represent his country in the Biennial Centroamericana Honduras 2008.
PLEASE!! Sign the petition to boycott him from participating in the event. Photos can also be seen at this site:
