Photo story: Brush Monkeys-downtown Midland

Downtown Midland is aglow this holiday season with the Santa House, the Northern Star Train, decorations at the Midland County Courthouse, and the efforts of the Brush Monkeys.

This talented band of artists have adorned their work on several storefront windows throughout the downtown area. The Ann Arbor based group first came to Midland in 2019. 

Take a good look the next time you’re strolling through downtown during your holiday shopping or if you’re just out and about.
