It is unique. Suitable that it is located next to the men's room in the basement. I would go back, as the display changes!

The Museum of Bad Art's proximity to the men's room really enhances the badness.

Museum of Bad Art

Went to the MOBA in Dedham, MA after dinner next door at Isebella's. It is in the community theater where there are a few paintings in the lobby, but the vast majority of creative art (15 or more) are downstairs in the basement on the way to the men's room. This viewing room, with it's stark concrete walls and floor, seems suitable for seeing such art. Works include "Sunday on the pot with George,""Pablo Presley," and the heart wrenching "Pals" showing a clown and his monkey. Free admission and the lobby sells T shirts and postcards of some of the art besides popcorn and bon bons.
