Stop in at One Mile Gallery in Kingston, New York to catch an unusual art show every Saturday in September. The Monsters in America art show was inspired by the Monsters in America map by Hog Island Press and curated by artist Richard Saja. It features interpretations of Bigfoot, Mothman, lake monsters and other cryptozoological creatures in a variety of mediums by 58 different artists.

From the show description:

Whether the protagonist be the Pope Lick Monster, Wampaus Cat, Mothman or Chupacabra, tales of mysterious creatures and inexplicable phenomena have been passed down for generations. Curated by Richard Saja, One Mile’s September offering, “Monsters in America”, is a group show featuring various artists’ take on the cryptozoological map of the United States. Each artist focuses on a legendary monster, ancient spirit or alien being.

Loren Coleman, the Director of the International Cryptozoology Museum, had this to say: “The cryptid-filled, cartographically accurate Monsters in America: A Cryptozoological Map of the United States should be on the walls of every museum, library, and researcher’s office interested in the science of as-yet-to-be-discovered animals. Hog Island Press has produced an informative, affordable, high quality collectible, which also serves as an educational tool useful for your next road trip, a future research trek, or everyday bibliographic study.
