Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is an explosion of shapes and colors. People often ask if creator Isaiah Zagar planned how the many colors and shapes would come together in PMG. Isaiah prefers to allow chance, inspiration, and improvisation to guide his mosaic work. When he reaches into his bucket of broken tiles, whichever tile he grabs, it is the right tile. The marbled paper we will make today, using shaving cream and food coloring, is inspired by Isaiah’s artistic process. You never know what you’re going to get but you will be delighted when you see it.
Visit this page on January 10th for an instructional video. Then join us for a virtual exploration of how Isaiah using chance in his mosaics at PMG.
