Art Run: Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens


This was a project created for the class of Art 122Y where each student had to go into Philadelphia and experience an artworld.  I decided to go explore Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens created by Isaiah Zagar.  This slideshare will show the six findings in the garden that I found most interesting, along with an introduction to the Magic Gardens and what my experience there was like.

  1. Joanna, I loved how you described the Magic Gardens as overwhelming in a good way because you felt immersed in the art! That one sentence really beauitifully captures the Gardens as a whole! I have had the pleasure to walk through and be immersed as well and I donunderstand completely of how wonderful it was to be around such interesting and beautifully unique with all of the statues, glass and wheels! It’s quite wonderful when found objects or things such as broken glass that would have been trash to most can be found as a beautiful art piece! It’s great that you touched on how the roof can give someone a new sense on recycling! That is a great idea to ponder since there are so many wonderful recycled art pieces and the world needs more if I do say so myself 🙂
    I think you did a wonderful job with this presentation in really bringing the garden to life through your righting! Top notch job and I’m glad you enjoyed yourself!!!
