“art too bad to be ignored”

In May, 2008, MOBA was proud to celebrate the opening of our gallery in the Somerville Theatre Like our Dedham gallery, it is located in a theatre basement, convenient to the rest rooms. At MOBA Somerville, admission is free with the purchase of a movie or concert ticket or request a free museum pass from  Of over 400 pieces in the permanent collection, 20 to 40 are exhibited at each location. Each piece is accompanied by a written interpretation, helping the public grasp many of the complexities inherent in the work. There are usually no MOBA staff on premises, but our friends at the Somerville Theatre are available to try to answer your questions and sell official MOBA merchandise.

Too bad the "bad art" isn't there anymore. They have been replaced by new ones which are, well, quite better. The place was okay, nothing special. Hmm, it's just near my place so I decided to give it a visit. But for people who would still need to travel far to go here, I wouldn't recommend it.
