The Museum of Bad Art

My People! Finally, proof that I'm not alone in my utter badness at being an artist. At least now I know where to will all my canvases when I die. ;)

The descriptions are priceless!
"Madonna and Child III
A work of undisputed tenderness which places the spiritual above the physical through careful disregard for details of the human form."

Having attended a MOBA exposition, get thyself there, it's amazing.

I can't believe this has never been posted either. One of the funniest moments of my life involves participation in a MoBA auction via cellular phone.

I don't think they're so bad! this piece reminded me of another by one of my favorite artists, modigliani.

I make my own bad art. It's easier than going to garage sales.

To expand on mcsweetie's observation, there is little difference between the bad art in the Museum of Bad Art and the bad art in the Museum of Modern Art. For decades, the Whitney Biennial has been the Sam's Club of bad art. "Contemporary Art" as a category simply means, "bad art." If you want to make fun of bad art, simply walk into either MoMA or the Whitney and point anywhere. I dare you.

Bad art? Please.

Warning: Art snob wanking in close proximity.

What's the difference between this stuff and the latest Tracey Emin/Damien Hurst?

Up your own arse.

Other than the value judgement of the operators, the site is excellent.

No dogs playing poker? No velvet Elvis? No bad art collection is complete without that. : )
