The BioArt Bayou-Torium: A Social, Bilingual, Art and Science Project on Buffalo Bayou

The BioArt Bayou-Torium: A Social, Bilingual, Art and Science Project on Buffalo Bayou

The BioArt Bayou-torium, created by artist Henry G. Sanchez, is a science lab and art studio housed in a shipment container overlooking Buffalo Bayou in Houston’s 2nd Ward. This socially engaged, bio-art based project invites the general public to make art by investigating nature with the aid of science tools and provides bilingual pontoon boat tours of the nature and history of the bayou. The Bayou-torium’s art studio-laboratory contains microscopes, imaging equipment, traditional art supplies and classroom sized studio space for an art making experience. Bilingual art assistants with expertise in the native wildlife guide visitors to make art and lead the pontoon boat tours to introduce and educate about the complex ecosystem, the stories and history of Houston’s main waterway. The Bayou-torium launched on April 13, 2019 and continues for the next two weekends.

The BioArt Bayou-torium is across from Tony Marron Park at 901 N. York Street, 77003.
