The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA) is a community-based, private institution dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms and in all its glory.
MOBA was first housed in the basement of a private home in Boston, but now is available to all at the MOBA Permanent Gallery, in the Dedham Community Theater, in Dedham Square, Massachusetts. Conveniently located just outside the men's room, the gallery is open whenever movies are showing, typically 5 to 11pm on weekdays, noon to 11 on weekends and school holidays.
In addition to the Dedham location, visitors can now enjoy Bad Art at the Somerville Theatre gallery; in Brookline on the TOp Floor of the Brookline Interactive group; and in Weymouth at the New England Wildlife Center.
Admission to the Museum of Bad Art is free, so this important institution is supported entirely by voluntary contributions and sales of MOBA gifts.
Its permanent collection now includes over 500 pieces of 'art too bad to be ignored', 25 to 35 of which are on public display at any one location. Glorious!
