Metal sea creatures glide through museum

Jul 19, 2016

The Delaware Museum of Natural History has a few giant, metal sea creatures swimming in its new exhibit: Extreme Art: Underwater Sculptures by Jeff Bell.

Jennifer Acord, Communications Manager for the museum, said Bell uses found items like boilerplate covers and cable wire to create elaborate underwater creatures.


“There’s a set of jellyfish that actually ring. They make a sound in addition to being a beautiful piece of art," Acord said.

Other works include an octopus, whale and stingray.


Bell’s artwork is presented in conjunction with the Museum’s summer exhibit, Extreme Deep: Mission to the Abyss.

The Extreme Art exhibit runs through September.
