Artist Watch: Isaiah Zagar

I recently visited Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, a mosaic wonderland on South Street created by artist Isaiah Zagar. Glass bottles, bicycle wheels, hand-painted tiles, mirrors, and sculptures cover the walls and floors, both inside the building and in the courtyard. Outside, Zagar created a maze of walkways that feel like a world away from the city outside. I was enchanted.

If you find yourself in Philly, I recommend a visit!
