I went into this store accidentally when I was Christmas shopping on Valencia Street. It is interesting and people find it awe-inspiring in it's supposed novelty, but really I got kind of mad being there. A pretty frivolous and unscientific (i.e. ill-informed) take on the curiosity cabinets of "yore."

Museum of Bad Art
"Art too bad to be ignored"
All of the works have captions, like this one:
"The organ master stares, transfixed by twin mysterious visions; the Neanderthal saint in the setting sun and the Gothic monk proceeding out from the cathedral's sanctum -- each framed by a halo of organ pipes, reminiscent of #2 pencils."
Apparently, this impressionist piece was the impetus, the founding catalyst, of the museum.
