22nd Annual BICAS Art Auction

More info: http://bicas.org/

This art auction will be at the Art Gallery, 1122 N. Stone Ave. (NE corner of Stone Ave. and E. Speedway Blvd.)  See press release below:

BICAS moved to new location on N. 7th Avenue

Bicycle Inter-Community Art & Salvage (BICAS) store has moved to 2001 N. 7th Avenue, south of  Grant Rd, east of Stone Ave.  They had a big blast shop warming party last night, which we attended, with raffle prizes, tours, beer from Dragoon Brewery, refreshments from Whole Foods market, together with lots of well wishers and bike patrons.  Reasons for the recent September move from the Citizens Warehouse at 44 W. 6th St.  are explained below:

“Our move was prompted by the Downtown Links roadway that will leave us without a parking lot and make access more difficult.

Our new location, which we purchased rather than leased, is a block east of Stone Avenue and four blocks south of Grant Road.”
