An Exhibition from the Archives of the Historical Institution for Para-temporal Phenomena and Observations (HIPPO).

This USC-sponsored exhibition investigates the mysterious 1973 disappearance of former HIPPO director, Dr. Leo Tempus II. Archival footage and documents associated with his disappearance, his time-traveling device, and sightings of an elusive, ape-like creature, Simius Tenebris Arroyae, are on display in video viewing boxes though out Lower Arroyo Park.
