Words and pictures really cannot do it justice. It is something that must be seen and experienced.
The artist, Isaiah Zagar, is the true master who lives his art! He and his lovely wife, Julia, are both artists and urban pioneers who moved to a run down area of Philadelphia back in 1968.
We took almost 150 photographs and
Loving mixed media and always on the look out to rescue found objects, we felt SO ‘at home’ in Isaiah’s creations.
Thanks to the kindness of a stranger, a lady taking in her recycling bin, we found out about THE MAGIC GARDEN.
She saw us snapping pictures left and right and just casually asked if we knew about it.
I’d like to give her a BIG hug. You’ll see why………….in my next post
“Each generation has its chance to modify a city to its needs and dreams. It’s called gentrification, but really it’s people re-thinking and re-dreaming a city.” ~Isaiah Zagar
