Lyft is partnering with Fired Up Management for the Intergalactic Art Car Festival on June 9, with all proceeds benefiting local art programs through the First Friday Foundation. The out-of-this-world festival will convene the largest collection of art cars outside the playa created by some of the country's most brilliant installation artists. Tickets are free, with donations welcome.
