Protein Portraits at Oregon State University

The Oregon State University Honors College course that adds paint brushes and computer art to the appreciation of protein molecules and their assemblies. We build protein molecules as we imagine them, depicting them as reflections of not only experimental science but of our living experience in the world. This year we will take up the challenge of making art inspired by viruses. What could be more timely? Art has always been inspired by both the joy and the turmoil in the world. Just ask Goya about that.
