Book Research: If you are prescribed death by a physician in Oregon under the death with dignity act and they are required to label your death as whatever terminal illness you had, now if you donate your remains to the arts, and sign an agreement could you allow someone to murder you without them getting into any legal trouble?

No. It would still be murder. Giving someone permission to kill you wouldn't change that.
The Oregon Death With Dignity Act does not allow doctors to kill patients. Instead, in some circumstances, it allows them to prescribe lethal medications to terminally ill patients so the patients can kill themselves. It would not even arguably apply in the scenario you describe.
