About 601 Tully

Check out our new website! 601Tully.syr.edu

601 Tully is a center for engaged practice in Syracuse, NY developed by artist and professor Marion Wilson with a rotating collaborative team of 54 students and neighbors and Anda French of French 2Design. It's a site for meaningful exchange between artists, community members, and scholars in the co-production of culture.

601 Tully includes a contemporary art space, a public events space, a bookstore, a teaching garden, and Recess Cafe West.

In 2009, Wilson purchased the condemned two-story home and local drug hub, and throughout five semesters, Wilson's design/build class re-zoned, designed, renovated and now sustains the physical and programmatic aspects of 601 Tully. The collaborative team has consisted of artists, architects, environmentalists, Fowler High School students, Green Train Workforce, neighbors, and the occasional passerby.

601 Tully is made possible by the generous support of the Syracuse University School of Education, The Kauffman Foundation, The Near West Side Initiative, Imagining America, Home HeadQuarters Inc., Say Yes to Education, and National Grid.

manifesto thoughts in brief culled from our collective research and design work:
1. 601 Tully is a relationship
2. the overriding formal element is the window, fenestrations, doors, openings - but mostly the window
3. beautiful collaborative moment (of which we could quote many) Andrew's lattice work above 601 Tully's twin; Marion says it looks like a grape grove; Lindsay says grapes grow well in CNY; and Kristen finishes with our first menu item: jam!

Lindsay - review reading
have mainfestoes ready
look at three new models
divide into same groups to resolve openings for structural drawings using manifesto
divide into new groups for coming week: drawings; desing;business plan!
