Aug. 6-Jan. 13: Crossing the Line: Paintings by Steve Miller
You can see an exhibit that puts the “art” in “smart” through January 13 at the National Academy of Sciences Building in Northwest. In Crossing the Line: Paintings by Steve Miller, the artist combines photographic, drawn and silk-screened images with excerpts from the notebook of Nobel Prize-winning chemist Roderick MacKinnon. Miller regularly explores scientific themes in his work, and uses this collection to highlight the beauty of proteins.
