On exhibit at the Yakima Valley Museum from April 5, 2014 through December 27, 2014.
This exhibit was compiled and curated by Christopher Murphy for the Museum of Vancouver (BC, Canada). It has since traveled to the Seattle Museum of the Mysteries (now the Northwest Museum of Legends and Lore), the Pocatello Museum of Natural History (Idaho), the Yale Historic Site Museum (Yale, BC), and the Columbia Gorge Discovery Center & Wasco County Historical Museum (The Dalles, Oregon) before arriving in Yakima.
The exhibit explores the facets of what Murphy describes as "a cultural phenomenon on the fringes of science." Some believe Sasquatch to be mythical, while others believe it is an elusive hominid relative of homo sapiens and other higher primates. Whether real or fictional, there is a deep history of Sasquatch lore throughout human culture. The exhibit addresses ancient legends from North America and Asia (where it is known as "Yeti" or "the abominable snowman") as well as recent evidence and sightings. Anatomical models, skeletal comparisons and dozens of casts of Sasquatch footprints will be displayed, along with stories of well-known Sasquatch proponents and witnesses. It is appropriate that this exhibit is presented in Yakima, the hometown of Bob Gimlin and the late Roger Patterson.
