About the Content at PMG
Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens would like to make you aware that our space contains artworks that display the nude human figure. Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens was created by Isaiah Zagar as a journal of his life. He, like many artists over the centuries, believes the human figure is its own beautiful work of art. The works are present throughout the site, along with countless other themes and objects, and are not the primary focus of our space. Our staff is happy to answer any questions you may have about nudity in the space prior to your visit.
