Philadelphia's Magic Gardens
Off the beaten path, you will find Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, a tribute to and preservation of artist Isaiah Zagar's work.
In the 1960's Zagar, his wife and other artists began buying and renovating buildings on Philadelphia's rundown South Street. Adorning the buildings with mosaics and special tiles, Zagar and his cohorts began beautifying the area.
About 10 years ago, Zagar's work was turned into a permanent art institution, consisting of a community arts center and an outdoor mosaic sculpture garden, taking up about a half block in a vibrant community on Philadelphia's South Street.
