Covering an indoor and outdoor space equivalent to half a city block, Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens glistens with creativity, urban renaissance and a hint of madness.
Isaiah Zagar, a local artist who began tiling South Street in the 1960s and never stopped, constructed the space out of cement, bicycle spokes, bottles, ceramic shards, and other artistic knick-knacks and the tiled passages of the Magic Gardens weave over- and underground.
The Magic Gardens spans three city lots and includes indoor galleries and a large outdoor labyrinth.
Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens has educational programming, performances, tours, and mosaic workshops, all of which are open to the public.
