Sam Schulman gets bailout fever:
Here's how it works. Created by our new administration, the Bad Museum will buy what can only be called Bad Art - artworks that either have not sold at a gallery or an art fair or have not met their pre-auction estimate. The Bad Museum may be set up in Washington, but I think it would be more appropriate if it were to be located in one of the soon-to-be-abandoned sites that symbolize the false ideals of the Bush administration: the Yucca, Nevada, nuclear fuel storage area; the National Petroleum Strategic Reserve; or the climate-controlled buildings of the Guantánamo Detention Center.
Update: Not to be confused with the Museum of Bad Art.
