Celebrate art and community with Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens’ Pop-Up Museum events, featuring crafts, games, and giveaways!
Pop-Up Museum events are free and family-friendly. Their goal is to connect with communities in the city and introduce people to the many mosaic murals created by PMG Founder Isaiah Zagar that can be seen throughout the streets of Philadelphia.
There will be crafts and games for all ages, free tickets available for Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, and the opportunity to learn more about the mosaic murals in each neighborhood. Interpreters will be available at each event for non-English speaking guests; A Spanish interpreter will be at all four locations, and Indonesian, Thai and Vietnamese interpreters will be at the St. Thomas Aquinas event.
