NEIGHBORHOOD WALKING TOURS
Take a walk through our neighborhood to discover Isaiah Zagar’s glittering creations! You’ll see more than 40 public mosaics on a half mile walk with one of our knowledgable staff members. Learn about Zagar’s techniques along with the personal and community stories depicted in his murals.
Tours last approximately 90 minutes and include access to our fully-mosaicked basement, which is not normally open to the public. Tour tickets include access to PMG’s galleries and outdoor sculpture garden, but these areas will not be included as part of the tour. Tour participants may arrive early or stay after the tour to explore on their own.
*In times of extreme weather, including high temperatures and/or thunderstorms, Walking Tours may be switched to Site Tours.
