Museum of Bad Art Tour

1:00pm

Tour the Museum of Bad Art Virtually

Join the Ludlow Senior Center and the Hubbard Memorial Library in Tour of the Museum of Bad Art sponsored by The Ludlow Cultural Council on Zoom.

The MOBA collects, exhibits, and celebrates art that will be seen in no other venue. Since 1993, they have collected art from thrift stores, yard sales, sidewalk trash, and even the artists who create it. They analyze, compare to classic art, and share with thousands of fans around the world.

Join Louise Reilly Sacco, The Permanent Acting Interim Executive Director of the Museum Of Bad Art as she gives us a virtual tour of the museum. She was part of MOBA’s founding team in 1993. Despite a complete lack of formal training in any visual arts, she continues to lead MOBA to maintain a reputation as the world’s leading institution in this field.

Louise Reilly Sacco will introduce us to the world’s leading cultural institution dedicated to art in which something has gone wrong and to describe how, and why it was established in her MOBA art 101 tour.  MOBA presents pieces from their collection, with an insightful, pithy, and often humorous commentary. 

“This program is supported in part by a grant from the Ludlow Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Mass Cultural Council, a state agency.”
