Do It Today: Art Tweet Up and Size Matters at NOVA 535, Circumference of a Squirrel

Part of American Stage's After Hours Series, Circumference of a Squirrel is a dark comedy that spins circles of meaning orbiting a one-man performance about Chester, a tortured, obsessive young man preoccupied with everything but the task at hand. A self-diagnosed “rodentophobe,” he frets ceaselessly about his parents, his ex-wife, and the constant threat of rabies. Chester shares details about his father’s irrational fear of squirrels and disease, a childhood burden that in turn infected Chester’s own life. Aug. 4-22, 7:30 p.m. Tues., 10 p.m. Fri.-Sat., American Stage, 163 Third St. N., St. Petersburg, all performances are "pay what you can" admission, americanstage.org.

Nova 535 has your Tuesday night covered with an Art Tweet Up and the Size Matters exhibit, which closes this week.

As if you had anything else to do on a Tuesday night besides watch Jeopardy reruns, NOVA provides all the incentive you need to get outta the house at their Art Tweet Up, with free hors d'oeuvres and a collection of artists and art-lovers to hang out with. C'mon; Alex Trebek can wait 'til next Tuesday. Size Matters is an exhibit of large works that play on the idea of size, with pieces by more than 20 Florida artists, including local faves BlueLucy, Frank Strunk III, Hugsmugglers, Tes One, Bask and others. The works are on display through Aug. 21.
