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.

Registration is open for our Spring series of free eco art classes for children.  Just like our Fall series of classes, they will be lead by our wonderful art educator, Bobbi Petrocci.  We have a lot of exciting projects lined up and we can only hope that the kids have as much fun participating as we've had planning the classes!

Classes will be held on Saturdays from 1:30 - 3pm.  There will be nine classes in the series, running from Feb 2 until April 27.  The students artwork will be exhibited in the gallery at 601 Tully on May 25.  Please see the registration form below for the complete schedule.  

The classes at 601 Tully are developed in collaboration by a team of staff members, including Professor Marion Wilson, and program coordinators in art education, ecology and community arts.  Students will learn through collaboration, through a range of media and by sharing personal stories.  They will collect materials for up-cycling and create new works of art.  The aim of the series is to develop the students awareness of their social and environmental impact.  They will construct their own meaning for "eco-art" based on needs, interests, style and pace of learning.
