Last year I attended the Magic Gardens’ Teacher Night and had a blast. If you have never visited the Magic Gardens (1020 South St in Philadelphia) then you have missed out on a Philly masterpiece. The great thing about the Gardens is that they are not only a beautiful attraction, but they also provide educational opportunities and events for the community.

 

 

 

I have seen my friend’s band play bluegrass in their basement space twice. The whole space is mosaic-ed from floor to ceiling.

 

 

 

 

 

I have also had the chance to tour the outside gardens. Imagine walking through a space covered 360 degrees in mosaic.
