October 7 – 29, 2016
Like many historic institutions that emerged in the latter half of the 21st century, the Pratt has a lurid, less well-known founding mission: to document the undocumented and unexplained, specifically the extraterrestrial alien unknown. Due to filing issues, the shuffle of organizational merges and departmental shifts, the original founding documents and primary collections of the Pratt Museum were lost over time. However, a recent inventory and re-housing project uncovered several objects that shifted the entire paradigm of our understanding for the museum’s collections. This exhibit shares a few of the stories associated with Kachemak Bay’s extraterrestrial history over the last century. . . . Or does it? Join us for October 7-29, and see if you can distinguish between fact or fiction!
