MIchael FRANK is the curator-in-chief of the Museum of Bad Art. A professional musician and entertainer with enviable balloon-twisting skills, he lives in Boston, Massachusetts. What else do you do besides running the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA)?As Mike the Hatman, I perform at children's events, making funny balloon hats.

The Museum Of Bad Art was established in 1994 by antique dealer Scott Wilson, who discovered what has become the museum's signature piece-Lucy in the Field with Flowers-protruding from between two trash cans on a Roslindale-area curb in Boston, among some garbage waiting to be collected. Wilson was initially interested only in the frame, but when he showed the picture to his friend Jerry Reilly, Reilly wanted both the frame and the painting. Frank, Michael .

TWO TREES IN LOVE Julie Seelig 12" x 16", acrylic on canvas Donated by Sally Seelig, the artist's mother May 2006.

Do you have formal art training?Louise & I are proud of our OJT (On the Job Training) and believe that a degree in art could disqualify a person from a leadership at MOBA.

From: Museum of Bad Art: Masterworks, by Michael Frank and Louise Reilly Sacco. PABLO PRESLEY Bonnie Daly 1. x 11, acrylic on paper Donated by Garen Daly April 1994. A refreshing multicultural treatment of one of the twentieth century’s most beloved icons. MOBA curators contrast this work with VELVET ELVIS, a work that is more suited for the Museum of Questionable Taste, the International Schlock Collection, or the National Treasury of Dubious Home Decoration.

The Museum of Bad Art is the leading institution dedicated to the collection, exhibition, and celebration of the world's worst art. This program, presented by Louise Reilly Sacco, is based on the book Museum Of Bad Art: Masterworks by Michael Frank and Louise Reilly Sacco. The program will explore MOBA's purpose, history, and philosophy. Some original works from the MOBA collection will be shown. You may bring along works of art that you would like to donate to MOBA. Ms. Sacco reminds you that MOBA accepts only about 10% of the pieces offered, but maybe yours will be accepted.

But Michael Frank is the head of a museum of a different breed, and a thrift store or a flea market is exactly the sort of place he would visit whenever he wants to enrich the museum's collection. Frank works for the Museum of Bad Art, the only museum in the world dedicated to bringing the worst of art to the widest of audiences. No children artworks are allowed, or art traditionally perceived as lesser in quality, such as black velvet paintings, paint-by-numbers, kitsch, or factory-made tourist pieces. What we look for are pieces of work that are produced in an attempt to make some sort of artistic statement - but clearly something has gone wrong," says Michael Frank.

Located in the basement of a theater, the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) is a unique institution dedicated to the celebration of artistic effort, however misguided. The Museum of Bad Art: Masterworks presents a pulsating collection of more than seventy never-before-published pieces of artwork from MOBA's permanent collection. Comprised largely of canvases found discarded on curbside trash piles or obtained for a pittance at thrift stores, this innovative compilation occupies a niche previously ignored in the international community of art collection, preservation, and interpretation. If the subjectivity of art appreciation were ever in doubt, this astonishing assortment of artistic commentaries will fan the flames of controversy. It is clear that many of these artists suffered for their art; now it's your turn.  A photographic catalog of 70 exquisitely bad pieces of master artwork from the permanent collection of the Museum of Bad Art in Dedham, Massachusetts.

As an art history major, I have a special love-hate relationship with kitsch, which is why the first MOBA book is one of my all-time favorites. This second one is also a great book for any art library, with some real high points. However, it doesn't quite measure up to the original volume, which is why I gave it four stars instead of five. It may be that the presentation suffers a bit from the smaller trim size (it's quite small, if you didn't pick that up from the description). And it may be that the novelty factor was completely co-opted by the first book. But I also think that some of the selections aren't quite as unabashedly ghastly as the ones in the first book. I have indeed enjoyed perusing it and chortling on multiple occasions, but a little more selectivity and a lower bar, and I might have awarded it that coveted fifth star.

Many museums throughout the world display bad art, but this is one of only a handful of museums in the entire world which does so knowingly and intentionally- Paintings which have been rescued from garbage cans, dumpsters and charity thrift stores... The didactics are very cleverly written, Michael Frank and Louise Reilly Sacco have quite obviously spent a lot of time studying classical as well as modern art...

These paintings are an inspiration. They make me want to create my own horrible masterworks. I would love to be displayed in the MOBA.

What a fun ride it is through these selections from the Museum of Bad Art,.....yes, it really exists and I'm saving up my money to go there! As an art teacher and artist myself, I can appreciate these "bad" works that have been rescued from rather deserving destruction by kind souls seeking to find equality even for works that just don't,........work that is. And it's not just anything that qualifies for this collection,....there are rather strict criteria that each work must meet before becoming part of the collection. This is such a fun little book that everyone who likes art at all should have a copy. It makes fantastic toilet reading and sure beats those everyday magazines that find their way into the powder rooms of America.

This collection of artwork aspiring to be mediocre is a gem! I loved it, and truly enjoyed the commentary which was added to each item. Let's face it, the comments are what really made the book. The artwork, whether found in a garbage can, bought at a flea market or anonymously donated, truly is awful. Not even modern art awful. Just awful.

It is a gift, but there was a tear on the front cover...thought it was kinda appropriate for a book about bad art...recipient will get a kick out of it, but would have preferred an undamaged item.

I bought a couple of these for my "fun" loving friends, unfortunately one is a struggling artist with no sense of humor, the other a great physician with a great sense of humor. One negative, two positive (counting me) ain't bad.

Bad Art. Truly Bad Art. Probably the best book on Bad Art that has been written and compiled in the history of Bad Art.
