BICAS merges bike-themed arts, do-it-yourself ethics, and ecological consciousness by providing education, inspiration, salvaged materials, and a socially diverse and inclusive artistic venue. Our program culminates each December at our annual Art Auction, which is a showcase of hundreds of bicycle-themed artworks made by BICAS staff and community.

Graphic reads, ‘BICAS’ 25th Community Art Auction, December 2021.’ Lettering is in yellow on a green background. Various desert creatures donning bike parts take up the bottom half of the image. A javelina has a bundle on his back that says ‘Top Secret,’ a rattlesnake curls around a simple upcycled lamp, a jackrabbit holds a clock out of bike gears, and a tortoise balances two wrenches, an axle and a wheel on its shell.

BICAS is thrilled to announce the 25th Annual BICAS Art Auction will be held in December 2021. This year’s auction will include both online and in-person activities. All community members will be invited to donate art to both showcase their skills and support Tucson’s community bicycle center. Event details are subject to change based on the recommendations of health experts and BICAS will continue to prioritize accessibility and the safety of our community.
