The National Academy of Sciences regularly hosts a collection of paintings done by an artist with a scientific theme. The schedule of exhibitions is available online. Despite the fact that these exhibits seem like nothing more than an attempt get people engaged in science (rather than explore the collaboration of art and science), the artists explore some very interesting subjects and just looking at the exhibition previews on the website they seem like they’re worth exploring if you enjoy modern art or just going to art galleries.
