Created by visionary artist Isaiah Zagar, PMG is a nonprofit art museum that inspires creativity and community engagement.
Philadelphia's Magic Gardens (PMG) inspires creativity and community engagement by educating the public about folk, mosaic, and visionary art. PMG preserves, interprets, and provides access to Isaiah Zagar's unique mosaic art environment and his public murals.
Covering half a city block of indoor and outdoor space, Philadelphia's Magic Gardens (PMG) glistens with creativity and urban renaissance. Artist Isaiah Zagar began tiling South Street in the 1960s and never stopped, eventually building a mosaic garden out of ceramic shards, broken mirrors, bicycle spokes, and vivid splashes of dyed cement. The tiled passages of PMG weave over and under ground, and perhaps more than anything through the mind of a dedicated and obsessed artist.
