Drake University’s pre-Relays tradition takes place on the Friday preceding Relays. This year’s theme is Like Never Before, so 56 student organizations have to plan a square design that matches this theme. Of those 56 organizations, Sinphonia was one to apply for a square. Designer Rob Clark explains that the process to get a square seems easy at first, but it’s more complicated than that.
Of course, the real reason students go to street painting is the inevitable paint fight. Students end up getting covered in paint within minutes of the fight starting.
