Here’s what you’re doing on Saturday

if you’re in the Fort Lauderdale area at least.

Amy’s in this show–it’s her first–and when we dropped her piece off yesterday, we got to see some of the stuff that’s already installed, and it’s really cool. Without giving too much away, one piece is modeled on the short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. It includes wallpaper just like the stuff in the story, and mosaics made of pills–drugs used for treating schizophrenia among other things–and multiple layered voices coming from speakers embedded in the walls. Leah Brown, who runs 18 Rabbit Gallery, turned it on for us and the experience was incredible.

So come down, or up, or over. Saturday night. There will probably be some drinking afterward at one of the local taverns.
