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.

Last Semester Curator at Wave Hill, Jennifer MacGregor, was a visiting lecturer in the 601 Tully Social Sculpture Course. This semester, Marion Wilson is one of three artists in residence at Wavehill.

"Visit Wave Hill’s Winter Workspace Open Studios for an insider’s view of the creative process. Engage artists Ruth Marshall, Marion Wilson and Claudia Weber through informal conversation, learn how they have been exploring Wave Hill and what they have made here this winter. Marion Wilson creates miniature landscape paintings on glass, based on Wave Hill’s stunning views. Claudia Weber’s installation is inspired by the Georgian Revival style architecture of Glyndor House. Ruth Marshall creates knitted, full-scale pelts of endangered wildcats, and also offers a workshop."
