Pops in the Park Artwork Unveiled; The Arts Founda- tion of Cape Cod unveiled the official painting for the 24 th Annual Cape Cod Five Pops in the Park concert at the Orleans Chamber of Commerce Business After Hours event on Wednesday, June 19% The artwork commis- sioned from Cape Cod painter Elaine Coffee will be featured on the cover of the concert's commemorative program book and auctioned at a reception on August 19  at the Orleans Inn to benefit the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod later this summer. In her own words, Elaine Coffee's mature work is an "exercise in engineering." Working elements from various sources into one co- herent picture, she acts like a theater director, casting interesting characters from disparate viewpoints and por- traying them as part of one harmonious scene. She il- lustrates this point of view in her Pops concert take with great clarity and inspiration. Proceeds from the Au- gust 24 th concert enable the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod to fulfill its mission to sup- port and promote arts and culture on Cape Cod. In addition to its role as Barnstable County's regional arts agency, the Arts Foun- dation awards grants and scholarships while support- ing artistic, cultural and edu- cational programs through- out Cape Cod. Pops in the Park proceeds will allow ex- pansion of AFCC's work around the Lower and Outer Cape. Contact the Arts Founda- tion of Cape Cod to reserve advertising space in the 2013 Pops in the Park pro- gram book or reserve VIP tables and seats, festival seats or general admission lawn seats.

At the Oberon .... Are shows to get your summer started off right! You're the Expert Tues- day, July 9 th at 7:00 pm, After Show at 9:00 pm .... You're the Expert bridges the worlds of comedy and academia, attracting a com- edy audience while providing them with meaningful con- tent. Each show features an expert in a somewhat ob- scure field. A group of hilari- ous comedians try to guess what in the world our expert studies all day long. After- wards, the expert dissects how wildly wrong (or right) the ideas about her field were. The show ends with an interview where we find out what our expert does and why their field is important. It's funny, it's interactive and you end up actually learning something. After a live taping of You're the Expert, the panelists (and a few special guests) cut loose to showcase what they do best: make people laugh. Featuring comedians from Comedy Central, Conan, Late Night, and more, this is a one-time opportunity to see some of comedy's ris- ing stars. July's show fea- tures Myq Kaplan, Aparna Nancherla, videos from Sim- ply Unemployable and a few very special guests. Bridget Everett on Wednesday, July 10 th at 8:00 pm ....
