Dedham, Massachusetts: Museum of Bad Art (Gone)

You once could run your taste buds over these uniquely bad artworks hung outside of a basement men's room. But in Dec. 2012 the men's room was turned into a screening room, and the museum collection was dispersed to other locations.

Museum of Bad Art

Located in the basement of the local movie theatre, the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) is a much-needed salute to Salvation Army Salvadore Dalis. The only part of this museum that is more genius than its very existence is the descriptions of the painting themselves. Only bummer: They were out of catalogs when I went but I got the Pablo Presley t-shirt and some notecards! It truly is "Art too bad to be ignored."
