Transcript of Magic Gardens

Magic Gardens 1020 South Street
Philadelphia, PA 19147 Zagar has devoted himself to
beautifying the South Street
neighborhood since the late 1960s, when
he moved to the area with his wife Julia. Zagar started working on the Magic Gardens in 1994 in the vacant lot nearby his studio. He spent fourteen years excavating tunnels and grottos, sculpting multi-layered walls, and tiling and grouting the 3,000 square foot space. In 2002, the Boston-based owner of the once-vacant lot decided to sell the lot. Unwilling to witness the destruction of Zagar's neighborhood art environment, the community rushed to support the artist. His creation, newly titled Philadelphia's Magic Gardens, became incorporated as a nonprofit organization with the intention of preserving and promoting Zagar's works at the site of the Magic Gardens and throughout the South Street region.
