Isaiah Zagar and his Magic Gardens' Mosaics

A few weeks ago Bob and I watched a film about award-winning mosaic artist Isaiah
Zagar and his incredible life's work, by his son Jeremiah and we were so inspired and
excited about this project that we had to go to Philadelphia to see it for ourselves. Words cannot adequately describe what is called "Philadelphia's Magic Gardens" so I am going to let Bob's photos and a link to the film's website tell the story. I hope that it will move you as much as it did Bob and I and that you enjoy seeing what we have posted here.
