The Julia Zagar Residency for Women Artists
The Julia Zagar Residency for Women Artists was developed in 2016 by community leader, entrepreneur, and arts supporter, Julia Zagar. A trip to Mexico when she was 19 years old ignited Zagar’s lifelong passion for the country and its culture, and she later received her BFA from The University of the Americas in Mexico City. This experience, followed by three years of service in the Peace Corps in Peru in the 1960s prompted her support of international folk artists and the collection of their work. For the last 50 years Zagar has cultivated relationships with artisans throughout Latin America, encouraging their work and exposing Philadelphia to their talent.
The goal of the residency is to support contemporary female artists working in the tradition of handcrafting and folk art, with a particular focus on Mexican and South American artisans. Those selected are invited to stay in Philadelphia, engage with the city, and present an exhibition at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens.
PMG can accept a small amount of tile, mirror, ceramics, or other objects to use for preservation purposes. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before dropping off a donation.
PMG’s education team is always looking for materials such as bottle caps (both plastic and metal), jar and plastic container lids, can tabs, etc… for various art projects. If you have materials you’d like to donate please contact Samantha and email@example.com.
