Prepare to delight in a collection of artworks that are simply “too bad to be ignored”! The exhibition gathers a hundred carefully curated paintings celebrating “the best of the worst art in the world.”

The MOBA’s unique collection has gathered the crème de la crème of art that is just too bad to be ignored. It’s a celebration of work whose intent is serious but whose execution is lacking. The mostly anonymous paintings have been classified and exhibited using real museum standards, with the occasional irregularity to highlight their uniqueness. Written with a light but mordant touch, each work’s description analyzes its imagery and style to pinpoint the source of their endearing badness.
