O.J. Simpson’s White Bronco Makes an Appearance at an Art GalleryPublished by on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 at 10:00 am.
O.J. Simpson may be cooling his heels in the slammer, but his famous white Bronco has garnered a bit of its own celebrity, making a well-publicized appearance at an art show opening.
In front of a stone barn that’s been converted into a Greenwich, Connecticut art gallery by newsprint tycoon Peter Brant sits the infamous piece of American pop culture. The Ford Bronco, which carried Simpson during his 1994 getaway from police, had been rented for the opening party for artist Nate Lowman’s show.
As Lowman’s work is often about confronting American symbols of “depravity,” the ex-football icon’s getaway vehicle was the perfect attraction for an art show titled, “I Wanted to Be an Artist But All I Got Was This Lousy Career.”
Beyond what ever deep or ironic meaning comes from having the Bronco there, featuring the truck only proves that while O.J. Simpson is deemed a pariah, folks still can’t get enough of his infamy.
