 O.J. Simpson expert and creator of The O.J. Tour Adam Papagan have curated a temporary exhibit, August 18-22nd at Coagula Curatorial Gallery, located at 974 Chung King Road, in historic Chinatown, Downtown Los Angeles. It is dedicated to the alleged double-murderer and Heisman Trophy winner.
The exhibit features newspaper & magazines, dozens of artifacts dating back to the time of the trial, a previously unseen collection of bootleg Simpson t-shirts, original artwork inspired by the case, and a 1994 Ford Bronco, which Papagan purchased with funds from a  recent crowdfunding campaign.

“I was total O.J. trail junkie back in the day and hosting this show is a lifelong dream come true."
An early issue of Gleason's published magazine Coagula Art Journal featured a cover story on the 1995 O.J. Simpson trial's effect on the artist and the art world" said
- Coagula Curatorial gallerist Mat Gleason.
