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

Ding Dong Gun

This piece was inspired by a friends Halloween Costume and the futuristic ray-guns of the past.  The body and trigger are from a classic ding-dong bell.  It does ring and was really fun to have at the BICAS Art Auction this year.  The sounds of the Ding…Dong could be heard throughout the event.

Yes,  A frisbee golf (or frolf for those that prefer) pin.  I have been wanting to make one of these for years and this was the year.  Besides the center pole which is from an old Basketball hoop, the rest is completely built out of bike parts.  The bike chain works very well to drop the disk.  I used to play a lot during the summers when I lived in Madison, WI and was spoiled with beautiful 18-hole courses in huge city parks.  Now in Tucson we are not quite so lucky to have such courses but I have still managed to play a couple of times.   Anyway,  It was fun to play with this for a few days before it was put into the BICAS Art Auction and yes its to regulation size.
