The Phish-inspired art created by the band's devoted fans is an essential part of the community, and the overall Phish experience. Before every show, hundreds of original works are sold and traded in the bustling parking lot, and sometimes at mini Phan Art conventions.

Over the weekend during Phish's New Year's Run 2015 in Miami, Phan Art was on display at the Adrienne Arsht Center in a deservedly civilized and sober manner. The room was clean and calm, people moved at a slow speed, and a gal played Phish tunes on piano while folks bonded over the artwork.

Phan Art ranges from absurd to heartfelt. And to the uninitiated, every bit of it could fairly be called weird. Here are ten exceptionally weird-great examples.
