Lyft and Zappos are giving free art tours of Downtown Las Vegas every Friday and Saturday for the rest of July.

Passengers can hop inside a dragon car illuminated with LED lights and see 15 different art installation from Life is Beautiful, including a mural by Obey artist Shepard Fairey. Guests can also see two installations from Burning Man, including "Big Rig Jig," and "The Mantis."

The car itself is also inspired by a piece of art. Dubbed "Nightcrawler," the vehicle is modeled after the 20-foot "Dragomi," which give tours of Black Rock City during Burning Man. Justin Mitchell is the artist behind both vehicles, while Josh Levine helped out with "Nightcrawler."

You can schedule an art tour between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. by opening up "Dragon Mode" in the Lyft app while you're in Downtown Las Vegas. The tour begins and ends at Container Park. You must be 18 or older to ride.
