If you haven't seen any Conan O'Brien fan art before, welcome to our planet. We like cats and funny people here. Enjoy your stay. But for everyone else, you're surely already familiar with the iconic I'm With CoCo image, and you may even have seen some of the Flaming C fan art presented at a storefront exhibit near San Diego Comic-Con this year. Now the Museum of Conan Art (COCOMoCA) has opened an exhibit of Conan fan art in the second floor of Time Warner Center in Manhattan’s Columbus Circle. The NYCOCOMoCA is free and open to the public 9 am to 9 pm from now until November 3rd.
The exhibit includes works in several media from fans and professional artists (like Federico Uribe) as well as an audio tour voiced by Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter. They even have an interactive sculpture of a couch that hugs visitors, talks to them, and takes photos. (Couch is subject to availability, because I'm totally going to steal it for my living room). We've assembled some of our favorite pieces from the MoCA website on the next pages. Looks good.
