Museum of Bad Art

An ever-changing collection of bad art was originally hung on the basement walls of an old movie theater, next to a bathroom. Now it has a home in a brewery.

Museum of Bad Art

The Museum of Bad Art is once again homeless. It was forced to vacate its space in the basement of the Somerville Theater -- as it was forced to vacate its previous space in the basement of the Dedham Community Theatre -- when management decided that the basement could be put to more profitable use.

Original artworks such as "Spewing Rubik's Cubes" and "Bone-Juggling Dog in a Hula Skirt" are again out of public view, and MOBA director Louise Sacco told us that the museum's preference is to find a space in the Boston area near mass transit and open to the public on weekends. If you have a big basement with empty walls, please let her know.

The basement of the Somerville Theatre has served as an additional Museum of Bad Art exhibition area since May 2008.

To get a sense of what this place is like, here's a review of MOBA's very similar original gallery (now closed) in Dedham.
