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.

Breuer Exhibition at Slocum Gallery
The exhibition “Marcel Breuer and Postwar America” opened on Feb. 15 in the Slocum Gallery at the Syracuse University School of Architecture
The show was curated by Syracuse architecture students as part of a seminar on the Bauhaus architect taught by visiting professor Barry Bergdoll, the Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at the Museum of Modern Art, with Jonathan Massey, Syracuse Architecture associate professor and undergraduate chair. The exhibition is the outcome of their work in the extensive Breuer archive at the Syracuse University Library Special Collections Research Center (SCRC). It features images of 120 drawings, as well as photographs, documenting 13 of Breuer’s major postwar buildings and projects. Full-scale reproductions highlight themes that characterized some of Breuer’s lesser-known major work and document his responses to the needs and opportunities of postwar American society.
The exhibition runs through March 29 with a closing reception on March 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the Slocum Gallery. The reception follows a lecture by Pippo Ciorra, senior curator at the MAXXI Architettura, Rome, in the Slocum Auditorium at 5 p.m. Students and faculty will give a series of gallery talks focusing on key themes within the exhibition:
Thursday, Feb. 17, 5:15 pm: Designing the Breuer Exhibition
Thursday, Feb. 24, 5:15 pm: The Materials of Modern Architecture
Thursday, March 3, 5:15 pm: Symbolizing Postwar Institutions
Tuesday, March 8, 5:15 pm: Designs for Modern Communities
