My Travel Photo Journal of my visit to Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens

Magic Garden

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is probably one of the most unique and popular attractions to see in Philadelphia. In 1994, mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar purchased the property and turned the entire building into a giant mosaic work of art. Almost everything in the property is mosaic and is made up of many random knick-knacks and parts. Ordinary and broken items have been put together to make up something interesting, thought-provoking, and beautiful. If you take a walk around South Street, you will notice other spaces that Zagar has adorned with his mosaic style. Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is a symbol of creativity and uniqueness that South Street is known for. Currently, the venue is both a popular attraction and gallery space. The organization that maintains Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens also provide educational programming, performances, tours, and mosaic workshops, open to the public.

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is definitely a unique place you must check out when you are in Philadelphia.
