Outer Cape Calendar
Art of Social Distancing
Artists Megan Hinton and Paula Erickson found a rusty metal office desk at the Wellfleet Dept. of Public Works yard off Pole Dike Road. Hinton was inspired to create a site-specific installation, Remote Office, with Erickson performing at the desk. Hinton decorated it with objects painted a rusty orange patina and calls the piece a “response to the Covid-19 pandemic” and “an intervention on the landscape.” See her photograph documenting the project on this page — that’s Erickson in shadow under her umbrella.
Brunch With Mackenzie
Throughout Pride Month, Pilgrim House and Live From Provincetown are presenting “Sunday Service Digital Drag Brunch” online every Sunday in June at 1 p.m. with Mackenzie, a drag queen so vivid, she’s beyond virtual. You can watch live (the food is up to you) on the Pilgrim House Facebook page.
Among the virtual events offered by the Eastham Public Library, we recommend the exhibit by the Painted Ladies of Bourne, on view online at easthamlibrary.com throughout June. Also on the library’s site, from June 20 through June 26, you’ll find a prerecorded family-friendly concert combining jokes and music with Dave Maloof on piano and ukulele.
