From magazine covers and a library of books to football jerseys and an honest-to-God 1992 Ford Bronco, the objects inside the new O.J. Simpson Pop-Up Museum in Chinatown are monuments to one of America's most horrifying crimes and polarizing trials. Organized by Adam Papagan, a hobbyist historian who's been giving O.J. Simpson tours through his home neighborhood of Brentwood for years, the exhibit includes bootleg Simpson T-shirts, original artwork inspired by the case and commemorative only-in-1992 souvenirs. It runs through Tuesday, Aug. 22, at Coagula Curatorial on Chung King Road.
