  • The descriptions boy the curators are unbelievably hysterical. The art as well. As a painter, I cringe at the thought that my own work could be exhibited here.  more »

  • It's a funny place. Nothing huge but a good stop in after an early event or movie at the theater.
  • Hands down the best museum of bad art that I've ever been to.
  • Great exhibition, comes free with a movie ticket to the fabulous Somerville theater! Recommended wholeheartedly!
  • 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!
  • Maybe it's just not my sense of humor, but I was not impressed.
