BICAS Annual Art Auction

The BICAS Annual Art Auction is a weekend-long bash in December that showcases the work of some of Tucson’s greatest artists, supporting our mission with their donated bicycle-inspired art. Over the past quarter of a century, BICAS’ largest annual fundraiser of the year has grown into a staple of the Tucson calendar, celebrating the work of local artists and helping to fund our community programs! This all-ages event is accompanied by food, drinks, and live entertainment.

27th Annual Art Auction Contest

Our 2024 Annual Art Auction T-Shirt and Poster will be selected from designs submitted by artists in our community. This shirt and poster will be locally printed by in Tucson, AZ.

The winning artist will be credited on the inside tag of the T-shirt alongside washing instructions, and in captions alongside the poster. They will also be interviewed over email and featured in a spotlight on our social media. They will receive their own t-shirt. Please include with your submission whatever promotional information you wish to be shared!

2022 and 2023 shirts

Past years have taken the design used in the Art Auction commemorative shirt and poster on a winding road. Different designs or one and the same, staff created or externally commissioned, the nonprofit has experimented with an approach to this special piece. This makes it especially exciting that in 2024, BICAS returns to its roots by holding a contest for a design that will be both on the commemorative t-shirt and the poster! All proceeds go towards our decades-long mission is to promote accessibility to bicycle transportation and the arts.

The subject of the design can be anything you like, as long as it fits with the theme of bicycle art.

With fresh ventilation and a spacious walkspace, we’re happy to be holding the event at this venue!
