An O.J. Simpson museum opened in Los Angeles on Friday on the heels of a Nevada parole board’s decision to grant Simpson parole after serving nine years of a nine-to-33 year sentence for a 2007 armed robbery conviction.
The pop-up museum and interactive exhibit is "dedicated to examining the legacy” of the “disgraced sports superstar."
The five-day exhibit will be housed at the Coagula Curatorial Gallery and feature dozens of artifacts dating back to Simpson's 1995 double murder-trial.
The art show will feature a collection of previously unseen bootleg Simpson T-shirts, a Simpson library, relics from the court case and a 1994 Ford Bronco, similar to the getaway car driven by Al Cowlings and carrying Simpson during the infamous 1994 low-speed chase. Adam Papagan, the curator of the exhibit, purchased the Bronco with funds from a recent crowd funding campaign.
“Everyone knows the media version [of the Simpson trial], but the O.J. Museum is the vernacular of the people,” Papagan said in a news release.
The museum will be on display at the Coagula Curatorial Gallery in Los Angeles from Aug. 18-22. Admission is $5 at the door and advance tickets are $4.
