MIND-BLOWING PHILADELPHIA

Art has the power to transform, surprise, shock, and inspire.  Isaiah Zagar’s folk art environment Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens does all of that and more. Revitalizing an entire derelict neighborhood, the massive outdoor sculpture park spans half a block and is replete with bicycle wheels, colorful glass bottles, hand-made tiles and thousands of glittering mirrors.  Fourteen years in the making, the installation is living proof that one person can make a difference.
