Media Example - "Art in our Culture is art when a bunch of people say it is."

This is an "art piece" by Guillermo Vargas Jiménez. Many, many people may argue that this is not art. This is yet known as an art piece of an emaciated dog tied to a wall by a length of rope with "Eres Lo Que Lees" ("You Are What You Read") written on the wall in dog food. As part of Vargas's work of art he let the dog starve to is indeed a shocking piece of 'art'.

  1. This is NOT art. It's cruelty personified! Shame on you, Sr. Vargas Jimenez, for taking advantage of a helpless creature in the name of "art". And, shame on anyone who stood by, watched, and did nothing to save this dog!
