Memorable Atrocious Artists

It’s the hope of most artists that someday their work will be recognized by the masses, admired by historians, and remembered by all. For a select few, two out of three will have to do. Our regular guest Clay Wirestone compiled a list of the most well-known but worst-received artists of all time for Mental Floss Magazine.  Clay is also arts editor at the Concord Monitor, and he joined us in our studio to rundown a few of history’s most memorable creative fails.

McGonagall's Disastrous Poem..

And a Slideshow of a Russian Sculptor's Ugliest Statues...
