The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA), a community-based, private institution dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art, was recently brought to my attention by a friend that has way too much free time at the office. MOBA was founded in 1993 and originally housed in the basement of a private home in Boston. Dedham Community Theatre allowed MOBA the use of their basement so their permanent gallery is now conveniently located just outside the men’s room in a 1927 movie theatre. The pieces- some submitted and some found (in garbages)- are catalogued in the MOBA book Museum of Bad Art : Art Too Bad To Be Ignored.
