Size Matters: Bigger Is Badder
Wednesday, March 31, 2010 17:16 GMTSOMERVILLE, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) As far as bad art is concerned, size definitely matters.
The Museum Of Bad Art in Somerville, Massachusetts, collects and displays truly terrible works of art.
On April 8, MOBA will unveil the Bigger, Badder, Beautifuller exhibit featuring the largest pieces of bad art they could find.
MOBA director Louise Reilly Sacco says that in the world of awful art, bigger is always badder.
Artists tend to really let themselves go on larger canvases and branch out with crazier concepts and creativity.
Also, every imperfection shows up much clearer on a massive masterpiece.
Sacco says MOBAs biggest piece is a painting on plywood of a man wearing a puffy, powder blue 1970s hat. They picked it up from a dumpster after a UPS driver tipped them off.
Sacco says the museum gets its best bad art from dumpster diving, thrift stores, yard sales, and dead guys houses tried and true meccas for questionable art.
