One of the most beautiful places I’ve visited in recent years was Magic Garden Philadelphia. I like a wee jaunt around a museum (the National Museum of Scotland is bae) but art galleries and exhibitions? Not really my thing. I mean I think they are cool but I just don’t ever seem to find myself in their company. But when Rebekah suggested we go to the Magic Garden Philadelphia during Ali and I’s stay there, I wasn’t going to argue. Honestly I had no clue what this thing was we were going to see but after a traumatic subway journey and a little walk in the stifling heat, we were through the door. PLUS it’s only $8 with student ID (British ones too!) so I was intrigued to see what it was all about.
This outdoor mosaic by Isaiah Zeger is one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen recently. It probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but for me, it sealed the deal. So here is a photo diary of my visit to Magic Garden Philadelphia and every time I look at these photos, it inspires me to search for pretty things closer to home.
“I built this sanctuary to be inhabited by my ideas & my fantasies”
Have you ever been to the Magic Garden Philadelphia? What places like this can I find in the UK?
