  • Great exhibition, comes free with a movie ticket to the fabulous Somerville theater! Recommended wholeheartedly!
  • Maybe it's just not my sense of humor, but I was not impressed.
  • June 16, 2015 I saw a movie that I absolutely loved at the Somerville Theatre-I saw "Love and Mercy"- a tribute to musical genius Brian Wilson. As I waited for the movie to begin, I sat downstairs in the Museum of Bad Art. Boy- was that a relief, AFTER THE VERY STRESSFUL DAY I HAD at a nursing home. Long story short, prior to finding the theatre, I'd like to say with full authority that both Love and Mercy were in very short supply. Yet, the purpose of my missive is to review The Museum- not to offer my personal biography. So, it's back to the current exhibit. The theme is a religious one. A particular piece grabbed my attention. Specifically, it's titled "Altar Ego". I found both the painting and the painting's description very interesting. In fact, I sat directly across from it as I waited for the movie to start. Now there was a coincidence-and-then-some- especially coming "on the heels" of the horrid day I had at a local Catholic nursing home. Kudos to both the curator and fans of "bad art" everywhere!
  • Rotating exhibits with comical captions. Admission is free when you buy a ticket to any movie
  • I've been to MOBA 4 times, once to Dedham and 3 times to Somerville. I laugh so much at the art and the descriptions I leave with tears in my eyes and my asthma has kicked in. I have brought friends there and they feel the same. Love it!!!
