Miami may have its Art Basel with art and artists from around the world. But we’re willing to bet it’s not nearly as intriguing as Tucson’s Sculpture Festival.

The fifth annual fest, hosted by BICAS features art made from bicycle parts and other reclaimed materials, and smacks of whimsy, humor and talent, all courtesy of Tucson-area artists.

There are about 100 pieces in this year’s festival, which opens with a 6-10 p.m. reception Saturday at The Art Gallery, 1122 N. Stone Ave. The art will be on display there and at The Sculpture Resource Center, 640 N. Stone Ave., Sunday through Feb. 15. Both galleries will be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The closing reception is slated for 6-11 p.m. Feb. 15. All events are free, and proceeds from the sale of art will benefit BICAS, which is celebrating its 25th year and is raising money to get its own building. tucsonsculpturefestival2014.blogspot.com
