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.

After Adam Nahas and his art school friends graduated from Indiana University they found themselves without the school’s physical resources and human network. So he and a few other artists started up a shared work space — akin to a clubhouse — for creative types here in Bloomington. Their seminal locus has evolved into a support and education resource, social center, tool repository, and all-around one-stop shop for our town’s artists and those who aspire to become one. It’s called Artisan Alley; it now has three locations and offers classes, computer labs, studio space, galleries and much more.
