SDCC11: CocoMoCA - The Museum of Conan Art
Conan O'Brien fans flock to see The Flaming C Fan Art Gallery...
San Diego Comic-Con coverage brought to you by Tonner, Collectibles Insurance, and Big Bad Toy Store.
For fans of Conan O'Brien on TBS, this year's Comic-Con allowed con-goers to get even closer to the popular pale-skinned, orange haired TV show host than ever in the form of an art museum! Over the years, Conan has never ceased to receive art submissions from his faithful and creative fans so a decision was made to create a museum of "Conan" art; a CocoMoCA.
On an earlier episode of CONAN, host Conan O'Brien was immortalized by Warner Bros Animation artist Bruce Timm into the character named The Flaming C. Fans poured in their support with plenty of submissions of The Flaming C, which was featured in this art gallery held from July 21-July 24th in the Gaslamp District of San Diego.
Conan O'Brien himself made an appearance on Friday, greeting the fans who stopped by. The lines were long, but once in, you were given a free Team Coco t-shirt (a different one each day you visited) as well as a green screen chamber that put you into the action with Flaming C.
Conan's first foray into San Diego Comic-Con proved a success and we can only hope that this museum concept continues year after year. For more information on CocoMoCA, visit: teamcoco.com.
