MOBA - Art too bad to be ignored!




I am not kidding. I find this Museum amusing and interesting. It's about creativity, it's about people who challenged themselves and expressed what they saw or feel through the means of color. It's not fine art, that is for sure. But who haven't seen art in a gallery and wonder why someone called art that particular piece? Nowadays it's sometimes difficult to have a clear perception on what is art and what's not! So, why shouldn't these masterpieces be treasured?

MOBA isn't a Portuguese Museum but sometimes I also blog about things other than Portuguese. The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA) is the world's only museum dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms. 

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. MOBA was founded in the fall of 1993 and presented its first show in March 1994. The response was overwhelming. Since then, MOBA's collection and ambitions have grown exponentially. Initially, MOBA was housed in the basement of a private home in Boston. This meager exhibition space limited the museum to being a regional cultural resource for the New England area. 
MOBA's bad art collection at the following links:

portraiture
Artists who make it into the MOBA portraiture collection are often visited by a unique, possibly extraterrestrial muse.

landscape
Are those ice creams or mountains?

unseen forces
It is not an easy thing to struggle against mighty forces like the giant orange cat consuming humankind.

unlikely landscapes, seascapes, and still lifes
The Artistic License is available to one and all.

in the nood
Warning: contains noodity

blue people
We can tell much about an artist by their choice of skin tones.

poor traits
The human (or canine) condition, brought forth into the spotlight.

here the symbols crash
A celebration of the obscure. Cunning artistry hides as well as reveals.

recent acquisitions
Fresh new talent is discovered, sometimes quite by accident
