How Good is Bad? Or How Bad Does It Have to Be To Be Good?

Mar 10, 2009 At SITE Santa Fe

Michael Frank will be disclosing his trade secrets of identifying bad art, locating bad art, and discussing the finer details of bad art interpretation. Bring a piece of art to this low-rent antique road show to learn whether some of the detritus in your attic or basement is, in fact, museum worthy!

The Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) has been featured in People, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, Rolling Stone, and many others as an awfully big success. Located in the basement of two theaters near Boston, MA, MOBA is a unique institution dedicated to the celebration of artistic effort, however misguided. The collection is comprised largely of canvases found discarded on curbside trash piles or obtained for a pittance at thrift stores and yard sales.

Frank is the co-author of The Museum of Bad Art Masterworks: Art Too Bad to be Ignored, by Michael Frank and Louise Reilly Sacco (Berkeley, Ten Speed Press, 2008), and he will be signing books at the event.
