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.

  1. What is the nature of your collaboration?

    I work with both architects and artist to renovate and design with the influence of both affecting the design phase of the project.

    How is it different than your individual practice?

    The collaboration with different discipline is not very much different except the fact that the conversation becomes one that is less technical and a little more poetic.

    What, if any are the effects of the collaborative effort on your individual art practice?

    One learns to be more impractical and a bit more expressive, which at the initial stage encourages creativity from many sources.
