August 27, 2015

Whether you have an eye for art or not, Philadelphia's Magic Gardens will more than likely catch your attention. The art here is visually appealing and intriguing. At first glance, the pieces splattered all over this block-long art installation might look like trash, but the pieces make up mirrored mosaic pieces of art crafted by legendary Philly artist Isaiah Zagar.

Instead of just walking by, take some time to check out the art at Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, which is located just a short distance from Rittenhouse Claridge. There's so much to see, including statues made of glass bottles, broken pieces of mirrors, and bicycle wheels. Swing by on a sunny day so you can see how the light reflects off of the pieces. Don't forget to venture inside the center to check out the exhibits and inquire about the community art programs. The cost of admission is $3 for children, $5 for students and seniors, and $7 for adults.
