Museum Of Bad Art: Tough Times - Having a Bad Day to Dystopian Apocalypse
Wednesday, December 9
6:00 - 7:30 PM

Art has always helped get us through difficult times. Since 1994, the Museum Of Bad Art has made it their mission to bring the worst of art to the widest of audiences.

In this Zoom presentation, Michael Frank, curator-in-chief, will explore some of the ways MOBA artists react to small and large, real and imagined, disasters.

For more information about MOBA, visit their website:
Registration required.

Please join us Wednesday. This is a Zoom event. Register here.



Many thanks to the Friends of the West Newbury Library for their generous support!
