The Rules of Bad Art

There are rules, established by our mothership, the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) of Dedham, Massachusetts.  They are followed by all Muesum's accredited by AFBAM, of which we are members.  They go as such:

1) Works of Bad Art to be considered by AFBAM accredited museums must be original works of art by real people.  Chimpanzee art will not be considered for accession.

2) Works of Bad Art must deemed as Bad Art before they will be accepted.

3) AFBAM museums do not pay for Bad Art.

4) AFBAM museums may pay for Bad Art if the work is so beyond the realm of norm that its aquistion is imperative to protect the Bad Art form those who may harm the art.

5) AFBAM Museums may acquire, trade and sell Bad Art as they deem fit.

Thats about all there is to it.

Watch this space

The Bad Art Muesum of Ohio, formerly known as the Ohio Bad Art Guild, is returning to the web via this blog on February 1, 2010

The Musuem's Board of Esteemed Trustees have emegered from their five year self imposed exile and decided to relauch the entire museum collection, consisting of over 100 works of original Bad Art (more or less), via this blog space.  As before, the Esteemed Trustees feel that all art, even those pieces that fail to make the BIG TIME, deserve their moment of glory.

Artists represented include several names, most of which you have never heard of, or may sound or look familiar if you are related to the artists.

What makes Bad Art bad?  More importantly, who decides why art is Bad Art?  And why is Bad Art capialized? ALL these questions, and more will be explored by those who need to know in the coming months.

We, at the Bad Art Muesum of Ohio look forward to serving you in the future.

Sincerely, and yours with deep appreciation of Bad Art,

The Director, BAMOO

The Bad Art Museum of Ohio is Charter Member of the American Federation of Bad Art Museums (AFBAM).
