From Ward 3 Kevin Dahl’s newsletter:
“The 25th Annual BICAS Art Auction will feature a huge variety of practical and fanciful handmade bicycle-themed art, most of which is created using upcycled bicycle parts. All the art is 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.
The Art Auction is for all ages & will have food, drinks, and entertainment with bidding closing Dec.10th at 8pm. As a 501(c)(3), this is 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 specifically targeted towards youth.”
“After two years the BICAS art auction is coming back!
For over 20 years this traditional BICAS fundraising event exhibited some of Tucson’s best artists dedicated to supporting the mission of BICAS with their donated bicycle-inspired art!
As usual, all proceeds go directly back to BICAS & our unique community-driven programs.

Carolyn’s note: This is a wildly popular event where people bid hundreds of dollars for handmade, bicycle-themed art made of metal, wood, paper, ceramics, etc. New location this year at Tucson Mall SAACA Catalyst Art Maker Space, which I just visited in September for a TUSD community event. Don’t miss out. Easiest is to park in the large parking lot for free, enter at SW area of Tucson Mall, north of Wetmore St.
