Museum of Bad Art

These pictures are unlikely to leave you seeing double as they have wound their way into the Museum of Bad Art in Brookline, Mass. Sadly for the artists, their earnest attempts to capture their favorite personalities were not quite picture perfect.

But happily for the rest of us, they are now on display at the museum’s latest collection, aptly named Doppelhangers. The artwork is chosen by the museum’s longtime curator, Michael Frank. He receives an average of six pieces a month, but only accepts one or two. (Caters News)
