Not all art is cared for, or even wanted, and sometimes the artist spent a lot of time creating and affection in its creation. This is why The Museum of Bad Art was created. To create a space of unappreciated art to be viewed in its own right.
In 1994, Scott Wilson, an antique dealer, showed a painting to some friends that someone had thrown out, and that he had recovered. His friends thought this was fantastic, and suggested he started collecting.
Scott would hold receptions where he’d show off his collection, and within a year these were so well attended that they had to move to bigger premises dedicated solely to bad art. That was the start of the Museum of Bad Art.
