Museum of Bad Art

Holy crap! A new post!

Anyway...happened upon this gem by hitting the 'random' button in wikipedia a few too many times:

The Museum of Bad Art (MOBA)

I immediately thought of "Classy, Tacky, or Stupid?" when I read the beginning of their purpose statement:

Since 1994, the Museum of Bad Art has been dedicated to bad art. It is only through the efforts of the worldwide Friends of MOBA that we have been able to carry out our mission: to bring the worst of art to the widest of audiences.

Check out their online collection!

Also, this would make a great day trip from, say, Connecticut?

I love their tag line "art to bad to be ignored" !

Wow…I'm nearly speechless, but more because I have a hard time understanding why some of THIS is "bad art" but some OTHER stuff (that seems its equal) is "good art." I think the museum is classy in its portrayal of the tacky.
