Pop-Up O.J. Simpson Museum Opening in Chinatown
LOS ANGELES (CNS) - A pop-up museum dedicated to examining the legacy of former USC and NFL star O.J. Simpson will open in Chinatown today.
Displays in The O.J. Museum include sports memorabilia, a 1994 Ford Bronco, board games, a collection of 60 bootleg trial T-shirts and interactive exhibits.
"The O.J. trial has been a lifelong obsession of mine," said Adam Papagan, the exhibit's curator. "Everyone knows the media version, but The O.J. Museum is the vernacular of the people."
The exhibit at the Coagula Curatorial Gallery, 974 Chung King Road, will be open from 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. today, 11 a.m.- 8 p.m. Saturday, 11 a.m.- 4 p.m. Sunday and 11 a.m.- 6 p.m. Monday and Tuesday.
Admission is $5 at the door, $4 at the gallery's website, coagulacuratorial.com.
Additional information is available by calling (323) 480-7852.
