  • Philadelphia's Magic Gardens
    Sensory overload doesn?t begin to describe Philadelphia?s Magic Gardens. A seemingly boundless compilation of colors, textures, and shapes, the labyrinthine mosaic creation spans 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space. The masterpiece originated in the brain of Isaiah Zagar, a Philadelphia native who grew up in New York. During his third year of art school, he stumbled upon Clarence Schmidt?s folk-art-inspired installations?assemblages of found objects and recycled materials?and the young artist?s view of the art world changed. ?I didn't know that I was looking at art,? Zagar reflected in his mission statement. Self-admittedly, Zagar has been somewhat ?copying? Schmidt?s dynamic, free-flowing style ever since. The years after art school brought Zagar an onslaught of new opportunities. He spent time as an artist in China and India, joined the Peace Corps with his wife, Julia, settled in Peru for three years, and even tried his hand at ceramics in Wisconsin. In the 1960s, he and Julia returned to his birthplace?specifically, the waning South Street neighborhood. Isaiah quickly leapt into action, renovating dilapidated buildings and often adding mosaics to formerly barren walls. Eventually, Isaiah?s imagination outgrew their projects, and in 1994 he began constructing a new piece in a vacant lot near his studio?the project would become Philadelphia?s Magic Gardens. Isaiah spent 14 precious years, which he should have applied to Y2K preparations, scooping out tunnels, erecting multitiered walls, and splashing the entire space in colorful tile. The finished product stretches across half a block of South Street, the outside enclosure shimmering with vibrant tiles, the inside housing folk art, colored glass bottles, and countless sparkling mirrors. Now a nonprofit organization, Philadelphia?s Magic Gardens invites visitors to enjoy its visual candy with guided or self-guided tours.

  • The Rosenbach Museum & Library
    Most book-lovers consider all libraries invaluable. So just imagine how they feel about one whose collection includes the only surviving copy of the very first Poor Richard Almanac. When the book-dealing Rosenbach brothers passed away in 1954, they left behind an incomparable collection including that book and the manuscript of Ulysses. Today the library has expanded to include Bram Stoker's notes for Dracula and more than 400,000 other works of fine art and historic artifacts. Size: besides the main collection in the Rosenbach's original home, the museum has expanded into the Maurice Sendak Building next door Eye Catcher: the Rosenbach can be found on the 2000 block of Delancey place The Building: the 1865 townhouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and can be explored only with guided tours offered on the hour Permanent Mainstay: modernist poet Marianne Moore's entire living room now resides at the Rosenbach, having been transported piecemeal and reassembled on-site Don't Miss: the lively event schedule, which includes temporary exhibits spotlighting influential authors, reading groups focused on local writers, and concerts by musician-in-residence Dave Burrell
