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.

I was reflecting on the semester and the ideas and concepts we have discussed as a group and it made me think about my gut instinct. It is interesting how doing something as a group can change that feeling. Sometimes when i think about different concepts we have proposed to do or ideas we have shot down i think about how i agreed/ or disagreed with everyone. Now when sitting by myself i think how i would not agree with myself right now. Working creatively in a group of such diverse people, as we are, is a new concept to me, and i am really enjoying the process. As i reflect i think about the future and how i would like to try to take what i have realized from this semester and try to think and listen to my own instinct when interacting with the group.
