Those who cycle and walk along the Pere Marquette Rail Trail in downtown Midland will have a new instillation of art to admire, courtesy of Joey Salamon and Cam DeCaussin. The two artists created a large mural that pays homage to what makes Midland unique.
Salamon, from Midland, and DeCaussin, from Marine City, Michigan, met while studying design at Grand Valley State University. Salamon is now based in Detroit and has worked as a wall painter for five years on private and public commissions, spanning his work from Hawaii and Colorado to Detroit and Grand Rapids. DeCaussin, now based in Phoenix, Arizona, painted murals for a few years, but is more familiar with studio art. He is currently working as an instructor at the School of Art at Arizona State University.
