Bike co-ops are a fantastic part of the community. Not only do these organizations, which are typically nonprofits, offer a place for folks to rally around a healthy, sustainable ride, they also are integral for low income individuals to get a cheap, efficient mode of transportation that they can learn to build and maintain on the cheap. That, among many reasons, is why supporting BICAS in their annual art auction is so important.

The BICAS art auction provides a decent chunk of operating income for the nonprofit each year, and this year's 20th anniversary auction is no different. While it's a great event to attend and maybe buy some bike-themed art for your home, artists are also welcome to participate in the fundraiser by submitting their own works to the auction. Last year's event alone saw over 200 pieces of entirely unique art up for auction.

Submissions for this year's art auction will be accepted through Saturday, Nov. 28 and can be inspired by bikes, made out of bikes, depicting bikes and more with various media accepted. BICAS is offering scrap metal for artists who need it, as well.

For more information on submitting works or the auction itself, which takes place on Dec. 4 and 5 at the Art Gallery (1122 N. Stone Ave.), visit the BICAS website. You can sign up to volunteer for the auction there as well.
