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.

Any more suggestions?
I could also do one with blodgett in the background. Would that be better? I'll put it up next.


  1. yes might be too busy now but we are getting there.

  2. I like the concept of hybridizing the numbers and the house, and think it is clever, but I wonder what other ways we can communicate the 601 Tully name and the site visually. it just feels too heavy.

    a lot of time and conversation has been dedicated to how 601 tully will be a part of the community through our practice, design, and program.

    because this design so clearly emboldens the flat face of the house and then kind of obscures the rest, it feels kind of "plopped."

    Please don't take this the wrong way, and I think you're definitely off to a great start with these, but I wonder how you might rethink this a little... with a little less eyeliner and a little less jazz hands.

    (and I LOVE both eye liner and Jazz hands. ask samantha.)
