This is a great way to show the next generation very creative ways to utilize many different materials and beautify areas of the city. You could walk around for hours and find something new.

Totally stumbled on this gem walking from Center City to Italian Market. We could have spent hours looking at all of the tile, mosaicked into incredible 3D works of art. Would go back in a heartbeat. Not to be missed on your next trip to...More

The Magic Garden is literally a hidden gem. The entire thing is mosaic! It’s great for anyone who loves art or just anyone who could appreciate hard work. The man who made the Garden is in his late 70’s and continues to add to it!...More

I heard of this place a while ago, when I was looking for Mosaic classes online and couldn’t find any, until after a year or so I did. I loved making mosaic and of course, had to go and visit this place. Oh well! What...More

very strange place. it's amazing when you think that one man is responsible for all of this "art" but he seems to be pretty perverted and obsessed with male and female genitalia, uncomfortably.

In terms of size, the place isn't that big. But what they have managed to put into that space is incredible. There is so much to see. Every time I walked past a wall, or down a hall, I saw something that I did not...More
