Smokler's welded steel sculptures represent abstractions of a horseshoe crab, lobster, seaweed, nautilus and other marine life.

"Displaying these works within a museum of natural history emphasizes the reference to the natural world through form and texture," Executive Director Halsey Spruance said. "This exhibition shows how art can be used to enrich and inspire our understanding of the natural world."
