PECO Family Jams: Portraits and Picture Frames — Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens
When: Sunday July 10th, 12pm – 4pm
Where: Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, 1020 South St.
There are hundreds of portraits embedded in the mosaics that make up Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. Some of them are easily found at first glance but others are much more subtle, revealed only in shimmering outlines of mirrors or collections of like-colored tile. Isaiah Zagar, creator of PMG, often represents himself with four arms or wearing a distinctive bowler hat, but you will also find images of his wife, their sons, neighbors, friends, and pets, as well as figures from the art world and Isaiah’s own rich imagination. We are celebrating these portraits today by taking a photograph of you which we will print while you decorate your frame with everything from markers to sequins.
