Coco Conn

Digital Artist
Los Angeles ACM SIGGRAPH 1980's Chair

Coco produced the original SIG KIDS on November 11, 1986 for LA ACM SIGGRAPH.

Kids and LA SIGGRAPH Members came out in the hundreds to EZTV 8547 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, CA.

The SIGGRAPH Conference picked up the idea, and continued it annually.

Coco Chaired the Los Angeles ACM SIGGRAPH group in the 1980's.   She has been a constant driving force in the Digital Arts Community in LA.
