Molecular Landscapes and the Art of Science
Brain – wider than the sky exhibits artwork about the about the brain for all ages at the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon. Available until June 10th, Brain – wider than the sky features video installations on the brain, interactive sensory exhibits, artworks and digital games to showcase the themes of the exhibition.
New watercolor paintings Excitatory and Inhibitory Synapses by Molecule of the Month creator David Goodsell are on display. Can't make the exhibit? Visit PDB-101 for a new digital gallery of Goodsell's SciArt work.
Goodsell's molecular landscapes are now available from PDB-101 in a special SciArt Digital Archive. These watercolor paintings integrate information from structural biology, microscopy and biophysics to simulate detailed views of the molecular structure of living cells. These illustrations are free for use under CC-BY-4.0 license. Acknowledgement should be given as indicated for each illustration.
The Goodsell Gallery accompanies PDB-101's Irving Geis Digital Archive. Geis (1908-1997) was a gifted artist who helped illuminate the field of structural biology with his iconic images of DNA, hemoglobin, and other important macromolecules. Through a collaboration with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), which owns the Geis Archives, PDB-101 displays many of Geis' illustrations in the context of the corresponding PDB structures and related molecular information. Through this archive, these images are available for download for noncommercial usage.
