Do It Today: 3 Guys in Drag Selling Their Stuff, video art at USF

The descriptively titled raise money for a Faberge egg in which to inter the ashes of Diva's dead hubby. Then, miscommunications abound, leading to dire consequences for the trio of misfits—including causing a friend to be run over by a truck and a police shoot out. 3 Guys promises to be even better than season six of 24—in drag. It's hospitality night, so if you work in the, ahem, service industry, admission's just 10 bucks. Through July 19, 7:30 p.m. Thurs.-Sat., 3 p.m. Sun.; no show Sat., June 27; additional show 7:30 p.m. Mon., June 29, Club Nautico, 4900 66th St., St. Petersburg, $20, nauticostpete.com.

Why not let artists show, rather than verbally explain, the sources of their inspiration? That’s the premise behind Sixty Minutes, an innovative summer exhibition at USF Contemporary Art Museum that features specially-commissioned “video essays” by four contemporary artists — and the exhibit is in its final days. Asked to create hour-long mash-ups of their favorite video-based stimuli, artists Olaf Breuning, Kate Gilmore, Luis Gispert and William Villalongo each offer visitors a You Tube-esque glimpse inside their respective creative processes. The unconventional showcase also includes examples of video art by and videotaped interviews with each artist. In the adjacent gallery, visitors are invited to explore Museum At Work, a behind-the-scenes look at the process of documenting artworks from the CAM collection. Throughout the summer, interns and volunteers will work to augment the museum’s online art database by photographing several hundred works on paper; visitors may observe, participate and check out the collection online via a kiosk. Sixty Minutes and Museum At Work, through July 2, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 1-4 p.m. Sat., USF CAM, CAM 101, 4202 E. Fowler Ave., Tampa, free admission, 813-974-2849, ira.usf.edu. (Megan Voeller)
