The Art & Science of Shells at LASM

Stroll through LASM’s galleries and admire one of nature’s most beautiful creations – the shell.  Lafayette photographer Herman Mhire captures the subtle beauty and sense of wonder evoked by sea and land shells in this exhibition. Mhire selected his subjects from more than 7,000 species and 100,000 specimens collected by Dr. Emilio Garcia, a world renowned malacologist – an expert in the study of mollusks. Shells from Dr. Garcia’s collection will also be on view.
