MOBA Art Too Bad To Be Ignored
news + events

MOBA News is the leading journal in the field of bad art. It is published electronically and sporadically and is distributed free to Friends of MOBA in good standing.

There is no better publication for keeping up to date with all late breaking developments in the world of bad art. Read about recent MOBA acquisitions and events, inside reports of controversial bad art issues, and editorials by leading authorities.

What does it take to attain the coveted status, Friend of MOBA? A working email address and the ability to somehow tell us what it is. We will then assume that you are willing to commit your life to bad art and will enroll you. Would you like to join our preeminent institution?

The New York Times included MOBA (of course) in an article about "Lowbrow Art". Not sure we agree with the characterization. Lowbrow is not a word we would use to describe our collection or our fans.

Failure magazine (online) featured MOBA. Since we celebrate an artist's right to fail, this seems fitting.
