The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA)

What is this? A dog, a mountain?
Anyone? Anyone?  

This is proof that no interest or hobby is too odd, small, or moronic to be ignored.  If you love  something (like candy cigarettes or otters)  revel in it and see where it can take you.

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. The MOBA collection ranges from the work of talented artists that have gone awry to works of exuberant execution by artists barely in control of the brush. 

What they all have in common is a special quality that sets them apart in one way or another from the merely incompetent. 

Really some of these pieces are no worse than stuff we've all seen in various museums and galleries.  The point of the museum isn't  just to show bad work, anyone can make bad art. The point of the museum is to show 'real' art that is still none-the-less bad art, thus highlighting the fact that 'real' art critics would probably like some of this.  To tell you the truth I don't know what's better the art or the titles - the titles really make these pieces shine.

Be inspired by this and take heart that even sucking at something is better than not doing anything.

  1. ABSOLUTELY hysterical and some real truth there about what is considered 'bad' art. I mean is there any such thing - except for the beholder to deem it so? And on what grounds? ...their own singular subjective opinion; and as such, critics are no more qualified than a madman.

    But a museum?!! LOL!!

    That all said - you made me think to share another short post with you: http://sebiart.blogspot.com/2012/03/always-searching-for-sweet-spots.html

  2. ...really they should call it AWAL - Art We All Dislike - works exhibited only by jury and public vote. That'd make an AWAL assignment damn near empirical!
