Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) is a nonprofit visionary art environment and community arts center located in Isaiah Zagar’s largest public artwork. Spanning half a block on Philadelphia’s famous South Street, the museum includes an immersive outdoor art installation and indoor galleries. Zagar created the space using nontraditional materials such as folk art statues, found objects, bicycle wheels, colorful glass bottles, hand-made tiles, and thousands of glittering mirrors. The site is enveloped in visual anecdotes and personal narratives that refer to Zagar’s life, family, and community, as well as references from the wider world such as influential art history figures and other visionary artists and environments.
PMG has become a unique Philadelphia destination and hosts educational opportunities and diverse public programming to thousands of visitors each year.
Following the Garden group tour, join us to enjoy and celebrate Holiday Spirit with a drink and some delicious dinner at Percy Street BBQ is located just one block away in the Washington Square West. Vegetarian dishes are available.
In the spirit of the holidays, we will also be collecting donations for Women Against Abuse Philadelphia. They are working on building a library, any book donations new or used are appreciated. Both adult and youth books are welcome. They are also requesting gift cards, cloths and toiletries. Please visit our website, www.nawicphl.org/event
