To Donate: Contributions to the BioArt Bayou-torium can be made through the Buffalo Bayou Partnership which acts as the projects fiscal sponsor. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by the launch date of April 13th. Your donations go to pay for desktop microscopes; art supplies (such as watercolor, brushes, paper, glue, scissors); painting and signage for the shipment container; wages for artists assistants, tour boat docents and our boat captain; port-a-potty rental; installation of electrical outlets inside the container; a full-color inkjet printer and paper; laboratory equipment; and an outdoor wash sink.
