Recently, Adam Nahas, sat down with Saddam Abbas to discuss his unique journey transitioning from an Indiana University student to the White River Foundry and then finally founding Cyclops Studios & Artisan Alley.
Get an inside look at Artisan Alley’s Burl & Ingot tool library & community workspaces. Adam gives Saddam a tour of the spaces & shows him the work being done at Cyclops Studios.
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.
