Mosaic Monday/ The Magic Gardens in Philadelphia
Looking around for doggy mosaics to share this morning over at flickr and I found this fun travel photo in one member's stream. This is a back wall at the Magic Gardens in Philadelphia. I am starting to get excited because later this fall Dan and I are going to go visit Philadelphia and check out the work of Isaiah Zagar. We have not been anywhere in ages and we really need a break. Zagar is an award-winning mosaic mural artist whose work can be found on over 100 public walls throughout the city of Philadelphia and around the world. I really became fascinated by both the art and the artist after watching The video In a Dream. You can learn more about Zagar's work at http://www.phillymagicgardens.org and they have an on-line shop where you can order a book on his methods of tiling and grouting.
