Event Description (more details are better!)
Open Studio: Megan Hinton
Local resident artist Megan Hinton is an abstract painter and visual artist based on Cape Cod.  Hinton will give an artist talk to present and discuss the work she creates during her time in the Barn, to be followed by an audience Q&A and then an evening of music and live projections. During her residency, Hinton plans to paint interior and exterior views of the Hawthorne Barn, aiming to capture the subtleties and vignettes that give the place its character. Through nocturnal projections of her work that incorporate historical photographic references, she hopes to use painting as a way of joining past and contemporary experiences of the Hawthorne Barn and its legacy. Megan Hinton, a published art writer, educator, and avid traveler, has been exhibiting her work in New England and beyond for over fifteen years. Currently an MFA candidate at Mills College in Oakland, California, she also holds degrees from Ohio Wesleyan University, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, and New York University. Megan has been awarded numerous artist residencies in the United States, France, and Belgium, as well as three local MA Cultural Council grants. Her paintings are included in the permanent collections of the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and the Artists Association of Nantucket.  Sponsored by Boichick This event made possible with support from the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod

Jeffrey Foucault and Kris Delmhorst in Concert
Americana singer-songwriters Jeffrey Foucault and Kris Delhmorst may be husband and wife, but each has a distinctive sound and an extensive arsenal of songs to share. They'll be joining us for back-to-back individual acoustic performances, and if we're lucky, the two will share the stage for a few songs, too. Jeffrey Foucault In two decades on the road and multiple albums, Jeffrey Foucault has become one of the most distinctive voices in American music, refining a sound instantly recognizable for its simplicity and emotional power, a decidedly Midwestern amalgam of blues, country, rock’n’roll, and folk. He’s been lauded for “stark, literate songs that are as wide open as the landscape of his native Midwest” (New Yorker) and described as “quietly brilliant” (Irish Times). Don Henley regularly covers Foucault in his live set. Blood Brothers, Foucault’s sixth collection of original songs, showcases yet again his unrelenting dedication to craft and independence from trend. Kris Delmhorst Kris Delmhorst has forged a twenty-year songwriting career notable for a spirit of exploration and collaboration. Her most recent album, The Wild, was coproduced with her husband, fellow songwriter Jeffrey Foucault. It merges Delmhorst’s sophisticated melodies and hauntingly open voice with Foucault’s lean aesthetic to deliver a darkly hopeful, fiercely wise new collection of songs. Previously, Delmhorst released six full-length records on the respected indie label Signature Sounds.

The Art Colony: A Historic Walking Tour with David Dunlap (Tour 2)
You can often tell who’s visiting for the first time. They’re the ones who ask for the whereabouts of this “art colony” they’ve heard so much about. Of course, the answer is “Everywhere you look!” In our 90-minute walk, we’ll explore the close connections between the history of the town and the lives of the artists who have made it their home. Guide David Dunlap, a longtime journalist for the New York Times, is the author of the encyclopedic book Building Provincetown. This is the ticket link for one of the four tours being offered between Friday, May 24 and Monday, May 27. Note: Each tour will be limited to seven participants. These tours sold out quickly last year, so waste no time in securing your space. David Dunlap has covered the built environment of New York City for The New York Times since 1981: infrastructure, architecture, engineering, landmarks, public spaces, and transportation — including Macy’s wooden escalators. His reporting since 2003 has concentrated on the redevelopment of the World Trade Center. He also serves as the keeper of Times history. Dunlap's books include Building Provincetown and From Abyssinian to Zion.

Boy Erased was adapted for the 2018 film of the same name, as well as the podcast UnErased: The History of Conversion Therapy in America.

Matthew Riemer and Leighton Brown, creators of Instagram’s massively popular @lgbt_history, live in Washington, D.C., where Brown is an attorney and Riemer, a former attorney, is a writer and lecturer. They enjoying fighting fascists, spending time with their dog, and disrupting fundamentalists’ worldviews. Essential and empowering, We Are Everywhere, the couple’s first book, is a rich and sweeping photographic history of the Queer Liberation Movement, combining exhaustively researched narrative with meticulously curated photographs, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Garrard Conley is the author of the New York Times best-seller Boy Erased (Penguin 2016), now a major motion picture. Boy Erased was nominated for a Lamdba Literary Award and was featured as a top 2016 nonfiction book by O Magazine, Buzzfeed Books, and Shelf Awareness, and has been translated into over a dozen languages. Conley is also a producer and creator of the podcast UnErased, which explores the history of conversion therapy in America.
