The Magic Garden
The Magic Gardens is an amazing place. Created by Isaiah Zagar, the piece spans a whole block. He has created over 100 mosaics around Central Philly, but the masterpiece is located on 1020 South Street. It is a place where what we imagine is made real. This place is so inspiring and beautiful that I am going to go back and just sketch for a whole day. I actually met his wife while I was there, and her name is Julia too.
It's hard to describe this place. The art surrounds you, but gives you room to breathe. The colors, the shapes and dynamic sculptural style is a pleasure to look at. I took an enormous number of pictures, which is why this may be one of the longest photo posts I've ever done. It was just too hard to pick which pictures to discard!
