SOHO, Manhattan (WABC) -- The plywood now covering so many businesses to protect against looting is also the perfect canvas for artists seeking to convey a message of change.
Artists like Dena Paige-Fischer have been painting colorful images over boarded-up buildings in SoHo.
Her Black Lives Matter mural is a tribute to George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and all the others who are victims of police brutality and racism.
Paige-Fischer says this is her way of peacefully protesting, in the best way she knows how.
