Today’s post exists just because I love engaging in the following two activities:
- Remembering there are people weirder than me.
- Celebrating what humans can achieve when they are really crackers.
I thought I might explore Crafting World Records as gleaned from the Guinness World Records of 2012 Edition.
That’s going to have to wait, however: for the very first entry I found was so awesome and brilliant, that I decided I had to give it a post of its own. . .
Least Valuable Art
The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA) – “Art too bad to be ignored” — is a community-based, private institution dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition and celebration of bad art in all its forms, and in all its glory. . .
MOBA was founded in the fall of 1993 and presented its first show in March 1994. The response was overwhelming. Since then, MOBA’s “collection and ambitions have grown exponentially.”
They now exhibit not only online but in two separate physical locations.
The collection at the Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) has the lowest value of any public collection (and is now on my must-do travel list). The 573 works of art are valued at a grand total of $1,197.
I know you’re going to want more, especially when you see some of the collection below (more available on the ‘About’ section of MOBA’s website):
I’ve already signed up for the newsletter myself and now I’m going to have to go to Boston. We’ll get to more World Crafting Records someday (Note: I very well may still be taking in the MOBA website as you are reading this. . .).
