Exhibition of Steve Miller’s provocative artworks blending science and creative expression will end on Thursday, January 23. The works can be seen 9 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays at the National Academy of Sciences building, 2101 Constitution Ave., N.W. The exhibition, titled Crossing the Line: Paintings by Steve Miller, is free and open to the public.
 
For the past decade, Steve Miller has made provocative artworks based on his collaboration with Rod MacKinnon, a Nobel Prize winner for his breakthrough work on the movement of ions across cell membranes. In paintings that juxtapose photographic, drawn, and silk-screened images with excerpts from MacKinnon's notebooks, Miller's work dissolves conventional distinctions between text and image to explore what distinguishes art from science.
