New Lyft mural project gives students experience of being for-hire artists
Six Wayne State art students are learning how to work with clients in a new mural project, which also functions as a directed study course. The Wayne State University Office of Economic and Community Development partnered with Lyft to sponsor the mural, which will be featured at the ride share company’s new designated pickup and drop-off zone behind the WSU Press building. The space will also include a bench with Lyft’s signature pink color, as well as signs to make it easy for drivers and passengers to find. The mural will officially be unveiled during Midtown’s popular Noel Night festival.
