Museum Profile ... The Museum of Bad Art

... to which yours truly (Dewi) is a contributor ... and their second book proudly sits in the MOOP's library.

The Museum of Bad Art was founded in 1994 in my brother's basement. Our mission is to collect, preserve, exhibit, and celebrate the worst of art. http://www.museumofbadart.org/We now have two galleries, in the basement of vintage movie theaters. Our collection is about 500 pieces, but we have enough exhibit space for only 50-60 pieces at a time. We always include our interpretative narrative when we exhibit a piece. We published a second book this year, "Museum of Bad Art: Masterworks." There is no paid staff. The Curator-in-Chief and I keep things running, with help from a constantly changing cast of volunteers. We never dreamed that MOBA would stilll be going strong 15 years later.
