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.

Brainstorming Logo/Motif/Construction Sign Ideas

These are some sketches I made for possible logo designs that could be used for anything at all. I liked the idea someone brought up in class today of a construction sign where the "0" (referring to the drawing on the bottom left corner) is cut out and people can put their heads and take pictures =) Any comments are appreciated--I'm always open to new ideas and I'll keep working on more ideas/neater presentation. Thanks!

Also, this artist, Charles Clay, has done some interesting sculptural, layered, paper wall-pieces that inspired me and I thought might give some ideas to other people as well.... Some of the pieces even seem relevant/similar in concept and idea to what we're doing with 601 Tully. If not it's still pretty cool so check it out if you get the chance!
