At the South by Southwest Conference & Festivals, we’ve had the chance to hear experts weigh in on topics ranging from brand innovation to next generation customers. We also got to watch creative energy and collaboration in action, as teams of artists co-created live murals, each one spotlighting a different cause.

On Thursday night, a group of famous artists and curators met in downtown Los Angeles to kick off an interactive experience called Lyrics to Life. The event—hosted by Dropbox and music encyclopedia Genius—features a series of original art pieces, each inspired by some of the most iconic song lyrics in popular culture. It’s an opportunity for artists to celebrate the stories, feelings, and cultural insights in this century’s biggest hits—from Radiohead’s “Creep” to Sia’s “Chandelier.”
