Philadelphia’s Magic Garden Made out of Recycled Materials

Posted by Deepika singh on 11 Mar 2011 08:00 PM

Located on Philadelphia’s trendy South Street, the Magic Garden is made by artist Isaiah Zagar and his wife. They started the project in 1994. The Magic Garden is build by of glass bottles, bicycle wheels, discarded ceramic plates, hand made tiles, and shards of mirror that form walls and tunnels, as well as decorative mosaics that feature poetry.

Visitors can tour inside the Magic Garden for $5. Zagar and his wife have spent years purchasing derelict buildings, renovating them and adding his signature murals, then selling them back to private residents. His recycled-art mosaics can be found on 55 walls across the city of Philadelphia, and his wife even owns a Folk Art Store nearby called Eyes Gallery.
