FAUSTIAN FIRST FRIDAYS (on-going)
On the First Friday of the month, it has become a tradition that all of the art emporiums in the city of Tallahassee stay open late and offer free admission. The main beneficiary of this monthly event has been the many art studios and galleries in the area of town affectionately called, " Railroad Square". With over twenty art studios in a single area, people are free to park their cars and simply walk around the square visiting galleries large and small. As part of the city's First Friday experience, the Mickee Faust company offers interactive experiences...with a typically Faustian bent. Each First Friday of the month finds the doors to our Clubhouse open with something unusual happening: Faustian Art Shows, Video Premieres, Musical Jam Sessions, Evenings of Bad Jokes.
