About Us:

Since 1994, the Museum of Bad Art has been dedicated to bad art. It is only through the efforts of the worldwide Friends of MOBA that we have been able to carry out our mission: to bring the worst of art to the widest of audiences.

MOBA maintains this website as well as three bricks-and-mortar galleries, all in the Boston, MA area. Directions and maps can be found here. Through traveling exhibits, special events, and changing exhibits, we share the best bad art ever assembled in one, two or three museums.

Our collection numbers about 600 pieces, but due to limited exhibition space, we show 50 to 70 at a time. Each piece is presented with the kind of descriptive narrative you will find with the art here.
