"The Museum of Bad Art is the only institution in the world dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition, and celebration of bad art in all its forms. MOBA, as it affectionately known to its supporters, presented its first exhibition in April 1994. The response, naturally, was overwhelming."
So writes Jerry Reilly, Executive Director of MOBA, and they have succeeded (if that's the proper word) in collecting (if that's the right word) some of the worst art of the Western world, from thrift stores, dumpsters, and garage sales. I vividly recall the launching of the MOBA website, and eagerly awaited the day when I could own a coffee-table book containing the worst of this bad--even execrable--art. And that time has come: everyone who I have shown this book has laughed aloud repeatedly.
Our advice to the artists: keep your day jobs. But who knows? Perhaps these artists will someday be regaled as the unsung geniuses of the late 20th Century.Review:
Awful big success. -- The London Times
Inevitably, perhaps, MOBA is gaining legitimacy in serious art circles. -- Wall Street Journal
