Instead of sending Nik "interview" questions, I'm posting the rejection letter he received from Michael Frank, Curator-in-Chief of Museum of Bad Art.

Nicholas,

Your painting arrived at the MOBA loading dock one day last week. It is intriguing, but would be problematic for us to display in one of our galleries in public movie theaters. In addition, I believe it represents a self-conscious attempt to be outrageous, making it inappropriate for the MOBA Permanent Collection, which includes work created in the attempt to make some sort of artistic statement, but in which something has gone wrong either in the execution or the original concept.

All pieces not entered into the Permanent Collection are entered into our Rejection Collection, issued an official MOBA Rejection Certificate, and sold at fund-raising auction.

Thanks for your interest in MOBA.

For a good time, check out Museum of Bad Art: Masterworks

As always I remain,
Mike
