Leave it to a bunch of artists to turn tragedy into joy. Due to the Stay Home, Stay Healthy ordinance, restaurants and small businesses have shuttered all over town, many boarding up the windows until they’re able to get back to serving customers. But those pieces of plywood are the perfect canvases for some inspirational messages and illustrations contributed by talented local artists. Are we missing one in your neighborhood? Tag us with a photo of it on Instagram @seattlemag.com.
