Thank you so much Tucson! We appreciate your support of the 25th BICAS Art auction! BICAS hasn’t had one of these events in 2 years due to the pandemic. While most of the staff was new, we managed to pull it off with 500 people coming to the 2 night event and over 100 unique pieces for auction sold in a single night!

Our art auction featured a huge variety of practical and fanciful handmade bicycle-themed art, most of which was created using upcycled bicycle parts. All the art was donated by some of Tucson’s best artists who support the mission of promoting education, art, a healthy environment & making transportation more accessible to our community. We also had live music by Son Jarocho Collective in Arizona and the Hatpin Duo.

This was our biggest fundraising event of the year with all proceeds going toward our various community programs that help people learn how to fix a bicycle, earn a bicycle, create unique art from recycled materials, and provide programs for youth.

In 2022, BICAS brought back the BICAS Art Auction! The annual art auction is loved by the community and the staff. In 2020 and 2021, we, unfortunately, had to cancel and pivot due to the pandemic, but as we moved past that moment in history, we found a new venue. We had an amazing auction! The CATALYST Arts and Maker Space by SAACA was an innovative creative, cultural, and collaborative space for the BICAS community, with over 14,000 square feet of space. We were super excited to be hosted by them. Want to be involved in the December 2023 Art Auction? Fill out the community art form.
