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.

Button Design

Hey guys, here's the button design, which may also appear on the T-shirts. The logo is still in progress.


  1. cool~i like this logo.
    could play some different scales on the T-shirt.

  2. can you make tully "lower case" and italic and smaller or soemthing. with both the same it is too blocky.
    otherwise perfect!!!

  3. Looks great. I would maybe make 'tully' all caps - the form is more similar to the '601' then. Also, what does it look like if the button is rotated 90* counterclockwise? 601 could stay at the bottom of the building (ie. also rotated), and 'tully' could run vertically down Tully St.
    Then, the text kind of mirrors the form of the intersection/sidewalks etc.

  4. but it think tully letters itself should be visually not as strong as 601 - if that means smaller lowercase or italics - they are too bold.

    i see yes all capitalized which will calm them down because then they will be smaller?
