A new exhibit at the Moses Lake Museum and Art Center about all things Sasquatch should appease believers and non-believers alike.

“Sasquatch Revealed” opens Friday and runs through Aug. 24.

Exhibit curator Christopher Murphy loaned “Sasquatch Revealed” to the museum. The exhibit is based on his 2004 Sasquatch exhibit at the Museum of Vancouver, British Columbia.

Murphy’s collection of artifacts and other Sasquatch-related material includes footprint casts, casts of handprints and knuckle prints, skeletal models and cutouts, carvings and sculptures, dioramas, paintings, stamps and coins, posters, panels and other display items.

As noted in Murphy’s exhibit catalog, “Sasquatch Revealed” is not meant to prove or disprove the existence of Sasquatch.

Rather, it’s meant to highlight the role Sasquatch, “real or otherwise,” has had in native and non-native North American culture.

The opening reception, Friday from 5-8 p.m., will feature a presentation from Paul Graves, who will share personal stories and songs from his more than 25 years as a Sasquatch investigator and researcher working in the Wenatchee Valley.

Also worth noting, museum members receive a 20 percent discount on Sasquatch-themed books from the museum store. Non-members receive a 10 percent discount.
