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.

collaboration or not?

it is hard to say if i enjoy the collabration or not?
though out this class, or many other collaboration projects i have done in the past. i often come to the feeling that i wish i am working with only myself.
However, collabration, working as a team, is what keep me feel alive in Syracuse. the only reason that i stay. without this notion of shareing, i wouldn't survive.
So, there is this love and hate condition always goes on when i talk about collaboration.
as much as i know how hard is to make a team work together, i guess to not like collaboration is probabely the bueaty of the collaboration. because i know a good design usually comes out with a mind of struggle, or a ballance between let-go and not let-go. and that is a condition that I tend to avoide when I desing on my own. Therefore, a collabration creats a environment that allows me to use my dislikeness to push me in a diraction that i am not comfortable with. which i believe is a good thing.
