Plywood creates perfect canvas

Christina Vasquez pauses for a moment while creating a picture for Stockholm Objects on Washington Street. Several Hinsdale merchants chose to board up their stores earlier this month while marchers were protesting the killing of George Floyd. Stockholm Objects decided to turn its plywood into a mural. Vasquez, a former employee, returned home from Spain, where she was teaching art, when COVID-19 cases began to spike there earlier this year. (Jim Slonoff photo)
