“Metrocard Collage – Conan O’Brien” by Nina Boesch, New York, NY
NEW YORK—Conan O’Brien is all over the second level of The Shops at Columbus Circle. There is a life-size sculpture of the talk show host made entirely of colored pencils that stands more than six-feet tall and a tiny pocket version of him, too. Dozens of other works of art are also a part of the New York Museum of Conan Art (NY COCO MOCA). All of the art was created by fans of the “Conan” show and many of the pieces are quite good. There are about 50 items on display and many more online. The exhibit opened on Oct. 24 and will close tomorrow on Nov. 3, 2011.
