Good art is in the wallet of the beholder ~ Kathy Lette
Since 1994 the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) has been dedicated to bringing the worst of art to the widest of audiences. Their collection has been accumulated in many different ways from dumpster diving to donations. But lest you think they accept just any old thing, the museum’s guideline is: it must have been created by someone who was seriously attempting to make an artistic statement – one that has gone horribly awry in either its concept or execution. Each work of art is truly too bad to be ignored.

MOBA is located in Dedham, Massachusetts and is housed in the basement of an old movie theater within earshot of the men’s lavatory. A second location opened in Somerville in May also located in the basement of a theatre but no word as to whether or not it is near the men’s restroom.
