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.

Holiday Party today & WORD THURSDAY tomorrow!

Today we had a lively holiday lunch-hour with our Blue Wednesday Holiday Open House. Many of our awesome neighbors stopped in to hang out, along with many other new and old friends alike.

Nojaim's Grocery generously provided scrumptious sandwiches and Maureen Nolan from the Post Standard stopped in to check it out and snap some photos!

We're keeping the high energy going with a poetry reading tomorrow night, starting at 7pm. Our inaugural WORD THURSDAY will feature poet Michael Burkard, and there will be an open reading to follow. So show up with an original piece and gather up the courage to read it aloud!

WORD THURSDAY is sponsored by Govsphere, Inc., which is a management, strategy, and technology services firm that delivers innovative solutions to meet the complex needs and challenges facing today’s government agencies.
