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.

Timber De-Nailing + Sawmill Drop off

So after an afternoon of frustratingly slow de-nailing, we dropped- (literally on Zach's finger) off some of the Lincoln Supply Beams at Oran Milling to be turned into floorboards...

Why this partition is taking some time...

So Zach and I were talking about how to show what went into these deceptively simple partition sections. So Here's A multiple-exploded axon breaking down the subcomponents that went into them.

This still doesn't quite get to all the complexity...
