Nature calls at the Museum Of Bad Art: Latest exhibition will feature images of wildlife - realistic, imaginary (and often unidentifiable)
The latest collection, entitled 'Mother Nature Abhors a Vacuum - And All Other Housework', features a stunning selection of "art too bad to be ignored"
The French artist Edgar Degas famously wrote 'painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do.'
One ponders, therefore, what Degas would make of the latest set of artistic efforts to be featured in the Museum Of Bad Art.
The Museum, which was established in the fall of 1993 and is dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms and in all its glory, opens its latest exhibition next week. And the artists have excelled themselves.
The latest collection, entitled 'Mother Nature Abhors a Vacuum - And All Other Housework', features a stunning selection of "art too bad to be ignored".
The museum, which has branches in Dedham, Brookline and Somerville, each on the outskirts of Boston, and will host a special exhibit spotlighting works from the collection featuring wildlife, realistic and imaginary.
With more than 600 pieces in its permanent collection MOBA has quite the back catalogue and prides itself on being "the finest bad art establishment in the world".
MOBA has published a book to accompany its online and physical exhibitions, also titled Museum of Bad Art: Art Too Bad to Be Ignored.
