The Magic Gardens In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Isaiah Zagar began his Magic Garden in 1994, a 3,000 square foot mosaic installation that comprises an inside gallery that pours outside to a serpentine mosaic sculpture. Found objects of bicycle wheels, blue, green and brown bottles, self-made tiles and mirrors that reflect the sun rays on this South Street location in Philadelphia take up a half city block. The Magic Gardens is now a permanent art institution open to the public year round. A must see!
- Today is the second Saturday of November and The Magic Gardens will be hosting their “Second Saturday Concert” presenting Brundlefly, Alan Ens, and Tongue and Groove, an integration of jazz, theatre and interactive song writing. Tomorrow TacTile Tours will be held for blind or partially blind visitors to feel the mosaic walls and sculpture gardens.
