Tubac, AZ – Ten of the over fifty Javelinas de Tubac that will be unveiled on Oct. 26 will be immediately available for bid in a silent auction. All of the “wild javelinas,” painted by local artists and organizations, will roam free in Tubac through the end of March 2020. Those interested in obtaining one of the ten can bid on these unique art pieces from Oct. 26 at 10 am through November 3 at 5 pm at the Tubac Center of the Arts (TCA), the nonprofit organization in charge of this outdoor art exhibit.
Interested bidders must go to TCA, located at #9 Plaza Road in Tubac, to obtain a bid number, see photos of the javelinas up for bid and place their bids on accompanying silent auction bid forms. Most of the javelinas that are up for bid are located in Tubac, so auction bidders can use the maps available at TCA, the Tubac Chamber of Commerce and local business sponsors to find the javelinas’ locations and see them in person. The javelinas up for bid will have an orange bow tied around one of their feet. Participants can bid as often as they like, but they must be willing to wait to receive their javelinas until the outdoor exhibit closes on March 31, 2020. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Tubac Center of the Arts and other local charities.

Javelinas de Tubac includes a total of 40 adult javelinas and six sets of baby javelinas painted by professional area artists. Designed by internationally renowned sculptor and artist, Nick Wilson, the peccaries are all one-of-a-kind with plaques on each identifying the artists and sponsors.
