Winter Art Showcase: Presented by Sigma Nu and Adam Long
Wed, Nov 30 4:50 PM – Wed, Dec 7 7:30 PM EST
Adam Long is a Bloomington based artist. After jumping from career to career, 5 years ago at 39, he found his stride with the brush. Even without any formal training or understanding of techniques or mediums, he felt strongly enough about his passion that he dropped all his monetary avenues and put all his efforts into painting. Following 4,000 hours of painting, he has transformed not only the city of Bloomington with his amazing style of bright bold colors and gorgeous landscapes and realistic and mesmerizing black and whites but also inspired many along the way to follow their dreams.
He is currently working on his 161st mural in just 5 short years. His efforts have helped raise more than $500,000 for programs across southern Indiana from organ transplants to the Chamber of Commerce, Cancer Support to the Boys and Girls Club, Public School funding to autism awareness, and so many more. He is the foremost and most decorated artist for the cause in and around southern Indiana providing his artist talents to more fundraising functions than he could count.
Adam has given his time and efforts to his craft in order to create a platform for artists. He hopes artists are thought of more regularly when others need help raising funds at functions and fundraisers. He has been actively searching for a business or relationship to carry his philosophy to the expanded state and national level of exposure. “There is no better way to affect the masses with hope than to paint a permanent and lasting image for all to see.” Adam Long
Adam has a wife and daughter and credits them with his drive for success. His love for his family is seen in all his murals with a “Heart” for his wife Nicole and the initials “LML” for his daughter Lorene Maree Long hidden in his murals all of Bloomington and the surrounding areas. Adam has 2 dogs, Mo and Milo, and is constantly badgered by his wife to paint their images. “If there’s another dog brought to my home, I’ll need 5 more empty walls.”
