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, located in Dedham, Massachusetts. The museum 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.
MOBA was first housed in the basement of a private home in Boston, but now is available to all at the MOBA Permanent Gallery, in the Dedham Community Theater, in Dedham Square, Massachusetts. Conveniently located just outside the men's room, the gallery is open whenever movies are showing, typically 5 to 11pm on weekdays, noon to 11 on weekends and school holidays. Admission to the Museum of Bad Art is free, so this important institution is supported entirely by voluntary contributions and sales of MOBA gifts.
Watch as Louise Reilly Sacco, Permanent Acting Interim Executive Director of MOBA describes the Museum Of Bad Art in this entertaining video.
