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.

This morning my roomate volunteered with ADAPT - CNY cleaning out vacant buildings for future projects. She said they found tons of building materials and old objects - including big sheets of glass - into dumpsters where they were smashed up.
I thought materials such as glass might be something we are interested in for 601 Tully...
Is anyone familiar with ADAPT CNY? They may be a good resource for materials - if we catch them before they get thrown out.
Here is their website...http://www.adaptcny.org/about.htm...if there is any specific material a group wants, mabye we can email adapt cny and ask if they would put it aside for us.
Its also a good group to be in contact with concerning revitalization of syracuse in general...theres some cool projects on the website
