Can art ever be awful?

Absolutely, according to these folks and there are prizes!

CLINTON — The Henry Carter Hull Library will be holding an “Awful Art contest” at 2 p.m. July 17.
Librarian David Boudinot will show images from the Museum of Bad Art near Boston and Claudia Mathison of the Guilford Art Center will provide instruction and materials to create hideous artwork. From pipe cleaner sculpture and recycled art, to horrific collages, participants will create and then vote on the worst art piece in each category. Prizes for group favorites will be awarded.
Participants must be at least 18; no artistic experience is necessary, but registration for is required by calling 860-669-2342.
