“What a color sensation!” writes Sara Kitzsteiner about July’s feature. “I spy … a very large mural that faces the old Kline’s lot,” says Pam Kisch. It’s “the back of the building that houses Conor O’Neill’s, Chop House, and Gratzi … it’s so joyful,” writes Marilyn Knepp. 

“Joyful indeed,” says property manager Joe Palms. It’s “Joey Salamon’s eye-popping mural on the Downer building, painted last Fall [and] commissioned by the Ann Arbor Art Center.” 

“I immediately recognized [it] as my daughter Amelia (age 6) has been attending Art Camp,” says Caroline Lukich. “Amelia … pointed out the overlapping circles in rainbow order … as her favorite part of the wall.” 

“Salamon created a dazzling geometric mural,” writes Barb Tester. “His work brought vibrant color to a previously drab [back] facade.” Salamon’s work “‘exudes joyfulness and brings pride to the community,’” says David Karl, citing the artist. “I think he has succeeded in his quest as it’s a fun mural to behold.”
