Rachel Perry Welty, Karaoke Wrong Number installationFort Lauderdale’s first Revel on the Block community celebration takes place on January 26, 2013 from 2-11 p.m. Organized by Cadence, C&I Studios and helium creative, the biannual event aims to build a stronger sense of connection in the local creative community, and will feature live music, art exhibits and various activities, food and presentations. Be sure to bring your friends, family and even that little hound for a fun filled day in Fort Lauderdale’s budding arts district, FAT Village!

Revel on the Block is a biannual event hosted within the FAT Village Arts District. This event sparked from an overwhelming response to ‘Better Block FTL’ and a need to create a better sense of connection within Fort Lauderdale’s creative community. It is open to the public and will serve as a catalyst to connect community, local business, designers and artist.

Girls’ Club is sponsoring a video installation of Karaoke Wrong Numberfrom collection artist Rachel Perry Welty as a part of the exhibit Intersections on view at Projects North. The public is invited to interact with the video presentation, as Welty lip-syncs to perfection wrong number messages from her studio’s answering machine. As our contemporary existence proves increasingly dependent on technology, Welty takes a comical jab at the missed connections and fractured communications of our tech-obsessed world.
