The Museum of Bad Art

PRESERVING OUR “MASTERPIECES”

 

Where does bad art go to die? The trash, a landfill, or eBay®? Not if the Museum of Bad Art has anything to say about it. Since 1994, MOBA has been building a collection of really bad art. From Mana Lisa, a testosterone-laden take on one of the world’s most famous paintings (at right), to Bone Juggling Dog in a Hula Skirt, which needs no explanation, the museum staff diligently selects only the worst of the worst for their permanent collection.
