Artsy Fanart - New York Museum of Conan Art 10/31 - 11/3
If you have to time between now and Thurday (and a fan of Conan O'Brien) head uptown to time Warner Center to the New York Museum of Conan Art (or NY MOCA for short). In town for a limited time - literally a treat for Conan fans.
And this is literally an exhibit dedicated the tall, ginger-coiffed talk host. However for a short time, he's returned to his beloved New York City and his fans have welcomed him with fan art.
From night lights to color-by-numbers to hand-painted acrylic nails to a talking chair (yes a talking, orange chair which you can get your picture taken and get Conan swag), the MOCA is an exhibit that is for fans by fans.
Time Warner Center is a great location for this once-in-a-lifetime event, what with it's mall-like atmosphere in a Upper West Side location. That's why NYFW is at Lincoln Center, placing fashion at a higher level, closer to art. Each piece also had a QRC code so you can look it up. Or if you want to check it out the old-fashioned way, click here.
Onto the pictures!
