TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A uniquely themed art show is hoping to raise funds this weekend.  The theme for the show – the video game Grand Theft Auto, however the organizers behind the show are not condoning stealing cars, but they are hoping people will come down and buy some art.

Featured in this weekend show will be bicycles, but not just ordinary bicycles many are superhero themed.  There is a Wonder Woman bike, a Batman bike and even a Spiderman themed bike, complete with webs. 

The art show will take place downtown at Broadway and Sixth Avenue and is free and open to the public.   Show times are Saturday and Sunday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In addition to the bikes, all bicycle themed artwork will be on sale.  Those interested in purchasing will be able to do so electronically via Bitcoin. 

A portion of the proceeds from sales will go to BICAS (Bicycle Inter Community Art and Salvage)  a non-profit group dedicated to educating people about the benefits of bicycle recycling.
