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.

notes from artist-Mary Mattingly

  1. I did have a drawing to go with these...but no longer have it: It was of a dome like structure that could be constructed from flexible branches, large enough for people to enter and explore, but light enough and small enough for it to be moved around...it would be transparent so people could see from the inside and vice versa- this piece would be located in the garden.

    This piece draws from aspects of mattinglys work as a place that gives new perspective to the "outside world" as well as the idea of survival skills of self constructed structures
