Can this exhibit just be around for every season? No, okay.
Los Angeles residents enjoyed themselves as Dropbox and Genius collaborated to bring some of their favorite lyrics in art form. Fans were able to feel, touch, and experience some lyrics throughout the eight different rooms.
The artwork was centered around artists like Nicki Minaj, Aminé, Notorious B.I.G, Sia, The Weeknd, Radiohead, Tame Impala, and Animal Collective.
“We believe people should have the freedom to create amazing things without limitation, especially when it comes to the technology and products they use to collaborate. Through our partnership with Genius, we’re excited to announce Lyrics to Life—a new collaborative experience that will show the industry what’s possible when individuals, teams and ideas come together." says Dropbox's chief officer.
The exhibit itself was open from March 2nd- 5th by RSVP only. On the opening day fans were companied by Aminé himself along with others in the industry for a night will not forget. Take a look at some of the highlights below.
