Hilarious! Museum of Bad Art Gives Your Kid’s Artwork a Run for Its (Ugly) Money (PHOTOS)

Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but there’s definitely no beauty to be held here.

If you thought there was no hope for your child’s awful, awful artwork, just wait. Did you know there’s an actual Museum of Bad Art (MOBA)? Located just outside the men’s room in the basement of a community theater in Dedham, Mass., the MOBA is “dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms and in all its glory.”

Lest you feel sorry for the artists whose work is on display, MOBA’s Permanent Acting Interim Executive Director tells Babble, “We’ve found that artists want to communicate. They want an audience. Once they realize that we value and celebrate works in our collection, most are pleased to be included. Evidence of that is that many artists submit their own work.”

(And lest you think the MOBA is a joke, this is their response: “This institution works long and hard at building the finest bad art establishment in the world. We take our mission very seriously. Frankly, we are shocked and indignant at your derisive innuendo.”)

Take a look at some of their god-awful gems, which should give hope to children with no talent everywhere that someday, maybe their art, too, can be hung alongside such (master)pieces of crap:
