Artist Boat was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) in 2003 by a board of directors representing artists and scientists from universities, government, and the private sector in Galveston, Harris, and Dallas Counties. Together the nine-member board brings over 150 years of educational experience. Since inception, and as of 2011, more than 40,000 participants have engaged in Artist Boat's unique Eco-Art Programs, each receiving a minimum of four hours of hands-on, place-based, and experiential learning formed in the context of marine ecosystems and coastal margins of the Texas coast. The budget has grown from one of approximately $65,000 in 2003 to $500,000 in 2010.
