1. Museum of Bad Art

Normalmente​,​ visitas aos museus são para contemplar as melhores obras de grandes artistas,​ p​orém o Moba (Museum of Bad Art​​), localizado em Boston (EUA), exibe pinturas de autores desconhecidos e com características que não seriam aceitas nas casas tradicionais. Sendo o único desse ramo, o Moba foi criado quando o seu fundador, Scott Wilson, se interessou por um quadro encontrado no lixo, a partir daí dedicou-se a colecionar as pinturas mais feias descartadas sempre em busca da pior. Com a ajuda de sua mulher e amigos, Wilson fundou o museu sem fins lucrativos, com entrada gratuita e sustentado a partir de doações.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #augustusturismo #augustus #moba #museum #museu #museumofbadart #museudaarteruim #exposicao #obras #pintura #artista #boston #eua #estadosunidos
