Artful Streets of South Philadelphia

 I’m counting down for the annual Magic Beyond the Gardens fundraiser gala to support Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens’ (PMG) educational programs on Saturday, September 22.  The gala’s name comes from the philosophy that the support of the community in South Philly surrounding the Gardens is crucial to the longevity of the organization.  

Also, it’s a reminder that Isiah Zagar’s masterpieces can be found throughout the streets of the city! He is the founding artist and is still continuing to work every day at age 73. He is a very inspiring person to be around. You have the chance to meet him at the Magic Beyond the Gardens so don’t miss this opportunity! 

The mosaicked labyrinth space at 1020 South Street is home to the non-profit organization that opens its doors to the public but the artwork that the non-profit works to preserve are scattered around the city. This photo collage features some mosaic morals in South Philly.
