I Don't Know Nothing 'Bout Art, but...

...neither do most people.

That's why hoards of new visitors are flocking to Boston to see for themselves the priceless collection on display at MOBA.  (The Museum of Bad Art)

The paintings are considered "priceless" because the paintings never had a price on them. The museum was able to acquire most of them by retrieving them from the trash, or picking them up for nothing at yard sales.

Directors at MOBA say their time has come!  They believe that the country has matured enough now to focus on "fairness" and equal outcome.  After all, why should only "good artists" get to show their stuff in museums?

Hence the large crowds of admirers.

Here's a small sample of what you'll see at the museum:

The Athlete

This is a crayon and pencil on canvas
acquired from the trash in Boston by Scott Wilson
  The Artist is unknown.
 It's a startling work, and one of the largest crayon on canvas pieces that most people can ever hope to see. The bulging leg muscles, the black shoes, the white socks, the pink toga...all help to make this one of the most popular pieces in the MOBA collection.

And you thought you were having a bad day!

Charlie and Sheeba

 Charlie and Sheeba
Artist: Annoymous
18" X24" oil on canvas

No longer able to tolerate the incessant
barking, Charlie the chipmonk used a 
band-aid to tape Sheba the sheepdog''s
mouth shut before posing with her on the 
picnic table.   

Inauguration 1961

And Last, but not least,

Mana Lisa
by Anonymous
12" x 16"
Donated by A. Schmidt, Vancouver, Canada
A cross-gender interpretation of the daVinci classic.

Mana Lisa's nose strikes nimbly, offsetting the dialogue between the 
foreground and profoundly varnished background.

I'll continue to do my best to keep you up to date on the cultural happenings of our time.
