Pending CDC regulations, we plan to hold our 25th annual BICAS Art Auction this December and are looking for a venue! Can you help?
- Looking for 3,000-5,000 sq ft Art Gallery or Warehouse
- Venue is ideally located close to downtown Tucson for ease of bicycle commuting
- Must be able to hang art on walls and have room to walk around sculptures/stands
- Ability for BICAS to get a special event/liquor license to serve drinks
- Max capacity should be at least 100-300 people.
Thanks for helping us look for a location for this family friendly, Tucson arts & culture tradition that hosts 1,000-2,000 lovers of art and bicycles each year! Message us here or email email@example.com with any leads.

“Martha, what is the most exciting part to you about making recycled art with parts from BICAS?”
For me, the most exciting part about making recycled art is the treasure hunt. I never know what’s going into the finished piece because I’m still looking for the parts.
“What are your favorite parts to use in salvage projects?”
My favorite bike parts to use are disc brake rotors, chainrings, and freewheel cogs.
“What do you hope to make next?”
My next project will be incorporating a chainring into a house number sculpture for my gate. I have other ideas too but haven’t designed or built anything yet.
“How are you nurturing your everyday creativity during the pandemic?”
I’m upping my culinary and home brewing games. In the past few weeks, I’ve been learning how to make mesquite biscuits, pizza, and apple soft drink. I’ve also added beer to my fermentation repertoire.
Awesome photos above are from Martha’s incredible salvage creation made from BICAS parts and other found objects! Check out Martha’s newly-launched website at http://www.westernskycommunications.com, then visit the BICAS Etsy Shop to purchase some salvage parts of your own. Parts are available for shipping or at-store pickup during the COVID-19 pandemic.
