Wheels, wheels, wheels!

Philadelphia Magic Gardens is an amazing place to visit should you find yourself on South Street, Philadelphia. This is not the first time I have blogged about PMG, and I am sure it won’t be my last. It is one of my favorite places to visit.

PMG is the work of Isaiah Zagar. A Philadelphia row home turned into a living ever changing work of art. Walls, floors, ceilings covered in mosaics made with found items. Isaiah has created mosaics all over the city. I like to adventure down the side streets and alleys around South Street to find new works I had not seen before. Should you find yourself on South Street, Philadelphia, or in Philadelphia at all, do yourself a favor and spend a couple hours at PMG!

I looked at Thursday Challenge theme for today and saw “wheels” and immediately thought of the bicycle wheels Isaiah has used in his works, so today I will share thirteen photos of wheels in Isaiah’s work so I can also participate in Thursday 13!

WOW, wow, wow, looks like Mr. Zagar immersed himself totally in his art. I’d love to see it all in person. Alas, I have no Philly travel plans for the next few years that I know of. Hopefully it’ll keep! I can see why you like it.
