A pop-up ‘OJ Simpson Museum’ is coming to LA

Now that he’s been granted parole, O.J. Simpson could be released from prison as soon as Oct. 1. But that will still be too late for him to get a look at “The O.J. Simpson Museum,” a five-day pop-up exhibition coming to the art space Coagula Curatorial in L.A.’s Chinatown Aug. 18 to 22.

Many of course believe that Simpson does not deserve a museum, even if it’s only a temporary gallery show. Coagula Curatorial owner Mat Gleason, however, says the exhibition is not intended to glorify Simpson. It’s largely a statement, he says, about the morbid fan culture around his murder trial.

“There are people to this day that say O.J. is innocent — not me — but it’s an obsession among Americans,” Gleason says. “All this stuff, this is the art of the people, the visual language of the common man.”

To display that visual language, more than 300 Simpson

A $500 million museum heist, 27 years later

LYNN — Twenty-seven years ago, on March 18, the world’s largest art heist occurred at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Two thieves made off with 13 masterpieces valued at $500 million, including Vermeer’s “The Concert” and three Rembrandts, including his only seascape, “Storm on the Sea of Galilee.”

The works have never been recovered, despite the offer of a $5 million reward for information leading to their safe return and promises of immunity. No one has ever been charged with the crime. But the investigation remains active.

Anthony Amore’s job is to retrieve the paintings. The Swampscott resident, who has written two books about art theft, is the museum’s director of security and its chief investigator. He will discuss “The Story of Stolen Art” Saturday at a fundraiser for the Lynn Cultural District at the Pick Up Modern store
