Vancouver artists are transforming Robson Street in Vancouver by painting on boarded up storefronts. The Downtown Vancouver BIA and Vancouver Mural Festival have enlisted the artists to create a more positive environment. The storefronts have been boarded up due to an increase in commercial break-ins due to the pandemic.
