Michael Frank to host evening with Museum Of Bad Art

Event has passed

Do you know what's even better than an evening filled with laughter and art; one that is hosted by seven area libraries? Join Boothbay, Cushing, Gibbs, Hope, Liberty, Vose, and Waldoboro Libraries as they co-host an evening with the Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA); art too bad to be ignored; Wednesday, April 14, from 6 - 7 p.m., via Zoom. 

The Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA) collects, exhibits, and celebrates art that will be seen in no other venue. Since 1993, the curators have collected art from thrift stores, yard sales, sidewalk trash, and even the artists who create it. They analyze, compare to classic art, and share with thousands of fans around the world “Museum Of Bad Art: Dopplehangers - Intentionally or Not, They Resemble Famous People.” This collection includes efforts to capture (or try to capture) the likeness of favorite entertainers, politicians, or historic figures. Some have accidentally ended up portraying faces we recognize, according to a news release.

Michael Frank will present this virtual exhibit through Zoom and in collaboration with seven regional libraries (Boothbay Harbor Library, Cushing Public Library, Gibbs Library, Hope Library, Liberty Library, Vose Library, and Waldoboro Library).

Michael Frank, Curator in Chief, is an acolyte who studied under the strict tutelage of the founding Esteemed Curator. Frank now heads the entire department. His appointment was due to his record of contributing more art to MOBA than anyone other than the Esteemed Curator, and that he already had a tuxedo.

A professional musician and entertainer with enviable balloon-twisting skills, he lives in Boston, Massachusetts.

This event takes place on April 14, from 6 - 7 p.m., via Zoom. Please email debra@voselibrary.org prior to 3 p.m. on the day of the event to register.
