Cyclops Studios helps artists manage mural projects in Bloomington, Indiana

Cyclops Studios owner, Adam Nahas, has been working with local Bloomington artists to provide opportunities for first time mural makers. He provides work space, art materials, equipment, and his time to help artists realize their ideas.

Adam works with artists and plots out their project using a grid and a projector. This helps them see how the wall painting will cover the various locations that he partners with.

Cyclops Studios Sets Course With Janeway Collective on ‘Star Trek’ Public Art Installation in Bloomington, Indiana

Captain Janeway Collective - Bronze Bust Mockup

Sean Starowitz, assistant director of the arts for the City of Bloomington, recently referred Adam Nahas, owner of Cyclops Studios, to Peter Kaczmarczyk, a Hoosier of almost 30 years. Peter grew up watching reruns of the original in the 70s and fell back in love with the series after taking a Trek-themed cruise with his wife a couple of years ago. 

After speaking with Peter, Cyclops Studios determined that this was a project that would be a lot of fun and worthwhile for the Bloomington community. This project will add an attraction that will draw people from all over to come see it.

Initially, $20,000 was budgeted for hiring a single artist to work on the sculpture. While we will still be including the work from this artist, Cyclops Studios suggested partitioning the various steps amongst local professionals to get the most competitive pricing.

Adam has refined the original sculpture design and suggested improvements along the way. He has consulted with the Janeway Collective and is on track to have the sculpture installed and commemorated on May 20th, 2020 in Bloomington, Indiana right along the B-Line trail.
