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.

so i was looking at pictures of all different houses and color of houses and these two really made me think of things we should think about doing with our house along the lines of playing with color like we talk. The white building made me think what if we drew a line where shadows wher created at one point of the day.. and then colored that area in with a lighter or darker area so that we would not just be paying with sides of the building but with the building as a whole and an image of it at different times of the day playing with shadows and what time it really is in the day when viewing it.

this image really played on different shapes of the building and forground and background. I thought it was interesting to look at.
