Magic Art Garden, South Street, Philadelphia

These are photos of the art garden on South Street called Philadelphia's Magic Garden. Many artists and craftsmen have come together to create this unique, awesome mosaic piece. The mosaic tile artwork can be found all over the street, leaking out of its cage. Broken bottles, ceramic tiles, found objects, and everything imaginable is glued to this building. It was started by Isaiah and Julia Zagar, and they have fought long and hard to keep the building for a community, public art space. Check it out if you are ever on South Street!

Mirrors, Bike tires, recycled art.

Even the entire interior of the house is tiled.
