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.

Leona Drive Project + Laundromat File

The Leona Drive Project

Site specific projects by artists in six bungalows slated for destruction in Toronto-- all located on Leona Drive. The exhibition took place in October, but the website mentions a symposium in March. Under the methodology section of the site, the project/symposium are self-described as "concerned with questions of site, liminality, the interstitial nature of suburban existence, architecture, taste, memory, ennui, white flight, emigration, development and the future of neighborhoods."

An ABD cousin to KK Projects and Project Row House? Perhaps.

The Laundromat Flat File
Other Inspiration... thinking about the gallery, the business, the counter? possible evolution of baby's windows: safe deposit boxes? flat files? library card catalogs? imagine the curatorial possibilities!


  1. awesome post. Love the laundromat file--maximizing a limited space situation in a very interesting way. Plus I love clerical culture and language.

  2. thanks, sam. i just can't wait to make a SOLID IMMOVABLE CONVERSATION/ART PIECE of a counter out of many of these! What about you?!?!?!?
