The Museum of Bad Art collects and exhibits original art in which "something has gone wrong."
The collection ranges from the work of talented artists that have gone awry to works of exuberant execution by artists barely in control of the brush.

The artist has effectively portrayed life-size pairs of disembodied, realistic and iconic in their simplicity.
Of particular interest is a cross-eyed pair of eyes along the left edge, and one huge bloodshot eyeball at the right center that may be the artist's own after a long night out.
Larger than life and unencumbered by eyelashes, the solitary green eye looms menacingly silent.
Pollockian splatters and a bright blue background change the palette, but the ominous black eye in the foreground of this derivative work is no less foreboding than the green one in HERE'S LOOKING AT YOU.
Yellow walleye (Sander vitreus) and blue walleye (Sander vitreus glaucus) are freshwater perciform fish native to most of Canada and the northern United States. The black ones in this painting seem to be of a different order entirely.
The woman/tree is crying out for help that will never come.
Attempting to combat the pervasive sense of isolation rampant in modern society, the artist presents a bold post-cubist image that compels the viewer to make direct eye contact.
This monochrome portrait of a young boy, repellent and yet compelling, is fraught with unanswerable questions. Why, for instance, is he portrayed wearing nothing but a short sleeve shirt that is obviously too small to fit over his belly; seemingly swollen in an unlikely pregnancy?
Stylized facial features float before a colorful background. The orange-slice eyes and blue lips are totally segregated; never invading each others’ space as they inhabit separate but equal real estate on the canvas.
Two or more artists contributed to this work in which we are reminded, when walking the desert at night, to remain focused.
This is an homage to Chango, an important deity in Santería; an amalgam of the Yorùbá religion introduced to the New World by African slaves, and Roman Catholicism introduced by the European slave owners.
Playful Russo-Turkish-Coney Island vortex has seemingly little to do with its surface mock Orthodox Stalinism, yet these subtle attributes reward extended, repeated viewings.
