Got a Hankering for Bad Art? Look No Further Than Your Mobile Phone

12 Oct

Art museums are easily accessible for art enthusiasts in every major US city. But, where do you look when you need to get your fix of bad art? Massachusetts’s own Museum of Bad Art is located in the basement of Somerville’s Davis Square Theater, but thanks to their new TourSphere mobile app, their tens of thousands of Facebook fans and email subscribers will now be able to view the bad works of art from their mobile device.

The Museum of Bad Art (MOBA) has three brick and mortar galleries in the Boston area as well as an online gallery. Visitors can peruse the world’s only museum dedicated to celebrating bad art. But, for those that can’t make the trip, the TourSphere app allows visitors visibility into the worst that art has to offer. Along with the peculiar images, the mobile  app provides short and humorous narrations of each of the pieces of art.

MOBA and TourSphere will launch the mobile app and MOBA’s latest exhibit, “99% Inspiration + 1% Perspiration = No Sweat” at a special event on October 17 at 7pm, in the Museum of Bad Art’s Somerville Theater location. For more information about this event, which is open to the public, visit: http://www.museumofbadart.org/99inspiration.php.
