Tired of trying to figure out the difference between "good" and "bad" art? Ever had to stifle a giggle in a gallery? Thankfully, there is a museum where you can trust your judgment and laugh out loud–the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA). What began in a Boston basement as a small collection of a few bad found paintings now fills a gallery and has garnered a national reputation.
