Dedham, Massachusetts

Museum of Bad Art

Museum dedicated to awful artwork 

Edit Place

Underneath the Dedham Community Theater, this little gem of an art gallery has since 1994 sought to preserve horrible artwork. Known as MOBA (the Museum of Bad Art), the collection started one night when founder Scott Wilson pulled the first piece, dubbed Lucy in the Field with Flowers, out of a trash heap. Since then, the collection has grown to fill two galleries, with numerous horrific works. There is another underground gallery in the basement of the Somerville Theater in Davis Square, Somerville, MA.
