Is there anyone out there brave enough to tackle this question and name names?
Some of the work in this museum looks like works I have seen in galleries and museums that show "good art".
Here is a recent story that was shown on NPR's "Weekend America", a fairly new program that airs on Saturdays. I love NPR and have rushed to my computer to see photos of subjects they covered. That's how I found this. I missed the story when it aired, however. Thought maybe you had, too.
Art lovers in the Boston area have a lot of options for their weekend museum browsing. You've got your Museum of Fine Art, your Institute of Contemporary Art, your Isabella Stewart Gardener Museum and scads of little galleries scattered all over town. But what about bad art lovers? Well, they're in luck.

Come back to tell us WHAT IS BAD ART for you?????
Some may name Damien Hirst after his $199 million dollar auction of formaldehyde, spin and dot art. Some are really hating on Jeff Koons, some obviously love him! Your fave does not have to be rich or famous or even contemporary. Who makes art that should just go in the trash???? I am very moved by Magdalena Abakanowicz but I have heard people looking at her installation in Grant Park in Chicago in horror (below).
Is there no such thing as bad art; is good art in the eye of the beholder?
Painting above from my "Out of the Box" series. I hope you don't think it's BAD art.
