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.

Appliances - Fagor brand and floor models

I designed a lot of small space kitchens - Fagor was a brand that I specified a lot because it makes modern apartment size appliances at a reasonable price.

Companies like Miele, Bosch, and Libherr make good products but they are expensive...it is sometimes possible to acquire these models used or as floor samples. I knew someone who acquired a Bosch oven for $100 from a Boat show. I have seen GE Monogram appliances at Salvation Army for $800 (normally 3-4K). The last day of trade shows are a great time to pick up bargains because transporting floor models costs a company money and selling them at a discount may end up being cheaper than transporting it back from the show.
