Conan O’Brien Lego Superhero Sculpture

Stop by the Michael J. Wolfe gallery from now till Sunday, July 24, to see some awesome Conan O’Brien-inspired art. Well, not exactly Conan O’Brien but his superhero alter ego, “The Flaming C”! As the physical extension of the online COCO-MoCA gallery, the San Diego shop has decided to turn itself into: The Museum of Conan Art.

Come here to see 60 specially selected works of fan art that all pay tribute to the red headed hero. The show, called The Fine Art of The Flaming C, is timed to coincide with Comic-Con so that those who are attending the pop culture convention can easily stop by.

The highlight? Secretly, over the course of three weeks, Lego brick master Nathan Sawaya built a 30,000 Lego brick replica that’s the exact height of the late night talk show host, or 6’4″. The tall statue currently stands in the gallery’s front store window.

“I can finally reveal my latest project: The Flaming C!,” says Sawaya on his website. “Conan O’Brien’s comic superhero has been living in my art studio for the past few weeks, but now he has made his way to San Diego Comic-Con.”

See the exhibit at 363 Fifth Ave., Suite 102, in San Diego. The show will be open today – Saturday, July 23, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday, July 24, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. via [Huffington Post]
