Greater Sage-Grouse population to decline from 16 million 100 years ago to between 200,000 and 500,000 today due to residential and building and energy development.  This was a commission for a man who has spent much of his life fighting to turn around the decline.

Agave Bike Rack at Historic Y

New Agave Bike Racks at the Historic Y Center for the Arts, Education and the Environment.  I started with round steel tubing and bent them into four, 6 foot circles and then cut them up to get the desired shapes and added in some recycled bicycle parts.   I am really excited about all the possibilities with the new shapes.

The School was able to complete this project with a grant from CPPW (Community’s Putting Prevention to Work).  They had a fairly small budget for this project but we were able to keep the costs down by collecting old boards, scrap metal, and bicycle wheels to use in the fence.  Much of the steel tubing was purchased second-hand at a scrap yard.  Zach Lihatsh helped me with building and installing this project.  You can see more of his amazing metal work at http://www.zachlihatsh.com/.  The CPPW grants were able to help facilitate many neighborhood projects and bring community’s together all over Tucson.  Unfortunately,  the CPPW grants will no longer be available.

NEW PIECES FOR THE BICAS ART AUCTION 2011

Posted in Artwork Donated to Organizations, Bicycle Part Art on January 16, 2012 by troyneiman

This years BICAS Art Auction was another huge success as well as a blast of an event.  BICAS is Tucson’s Bicycle Recycling and Education Center and a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.  The BICAS Art Auction is the organizations biggest fundraiser of the year and super fun community celebration of the bicycle.   I wanted to share some of my contributions here but you can also find all the other great art by other artists on the Art Auction Catalog.   BICAS should have a video of the Art Auction up soon on the website.  I am happy to work on commissions or you can come to Tucson for the next art auction, the first weekend of Dec. 2012.   Enjoy
