The most recent First Friday Scranton occurred on Friday November 4th, 2011. The weather was typical of a brisk autumnal evening, quite different from the warm weather of October’s First Friday event.
While this kept some people away or at least from visibly roaming the streets in search of First Friday venues, the turnout was robust (Lavish reports they had over 70 people walk into their establishment). Local universities represented themselves well as Marywood architecture students took to the square to showcase their “Sustainable Architecture” and the Hope Horn Gallery at the University of Scranton highlighted “The Sherwin Series” exhibit, a mix of photos, prints, and digital images set against Sherwin Williams paint samples (speaking towards the housing crisis).
Thirty-three other venues opened their doors as well to a good reception. In addition to the art several businesses expressed their musical side by hosting local bands, a capella groups, and jazz artists.
