Walking Photo Tour of Philadelphia's Magic Gardens
Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) is a nonprofit art museum and gallery space located in Isaiah Zagar’s visionary art environment at 1020 South Street. Spanning half a block, the museum includes an immersive outdoor art installation and indoor galleries. Zagar created the space using nontraditional materials such as folk art statues, found objects, bicycle wheels, colorful glass bottles, hand-made tiles, and thousands of glittering mirrors. The site is enveloped in visual anecdotes and personal narratives that refer to Zagar’s life, family, and community, as well as references from the wider world such as influential art history figures and other visionary artists and environments. The property is rich with photographic subjects. There are wonderful opportunities for close up and macro photography as well. I'll do a short, concise class on panoramic and close-up photography and then we'll have some fun. I'll be there until 2:00 pm but you could stay until closing if you choose. This one is on a Friday but you know you're suffering from Spring fever and you need a day off to recover. ;-) R.S.V.P early. This one is very limited and will sell out fast. I'm looking forward to seeing you there.
