There is only one museum in the world that actually celebrates accidentally awful art: The Museum Of Bad Art founded in Massachusetts in 1993. "Lucy In The Field With Daisy" was the founding piece that started it all, and it has only grown—there have even been international exhibits of MOBA works in Taiwan. According to the museum, most artists are happy to find that their work has made it into the museum. A spokesperson for the museum has said that the museum is "celebrating an artist's right to fail."
