601 Tully Then and Now

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.

The School of Architecture exemplifies one of Syracuse University’s main mission that our Chancellor Nancy Cantor speaks of; Scholarship in Action. With affiliation with the Near Westside Initiative, about 15 students of the 601 Tully class are working on rebuilding 601 Tully Street into a Community center that is fun, educational, and appealing to the residents of the Near Westside. Marilyn Higgins is responsible for all Near Westside projects and she is pleased to with the great stride that the school of Architecture has made to be community engaged and community driven, she says it is truly an example of scholarship in Action.
