A warm and creative atmosphere for every visitor
At PMG, people of all ages, races, and economic levels feel comfortable participating in creative practices, whether through viewing, organizing, or making art. Immersed in the colorful visionary environment created by Philadelphian Isaiah Zagar, visitors continue to report feeling inspired from both the history of our organization and founder, as well as the amazing site-speciﬁc installation. As illustrated above, PMG continues to focus on our mission to educate the public about mosaic, folk, and visionary art while preserving Zagar’s works.
