"The Museum Of Bad Art Has Been Celebrating Failure Since 1994", Vice
"Most of us are familiar with artworks, proudly presented, which look like they've been produced by a four-year-old at playgroup. But now rather than simply congratulating your friend/relative on their talentlessness you can suggest they make a contribution to Museum Of Bad Art (MOBA), an institution that only takes art so bad it can't be ignored", The Independent
"Founded in 1994, the volunteer-run museum has since received attention from around the world, and critics from the New York Times to Harvard scholars have expounded on its influence. MOBA has even released two books", Today.com
