Outsider Inspirations

  • Philadelphia Magic Gardens 1020 South Street Philadelphia, PA, 19147 United States (map)

“Outsider Inspirations: The Influence of Art Environments on Isaiah Zagar” explores the unique art environments that inspired Isaiah Zagar and his creation of Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens!

Zagar is far from the only artist to use non-traditional materials and methods to build a large-scale installation. This exhibition will showcase a selection of Zagar’s artworks, photographs, and collaborative pieces that honor some of these environments. Along with Zagar’s personal stories, this collection illustrates how influential these immersive works of art are while examining why spaces like these are so important. 

Isaiah Zagar and Philadelphia's Magic Gardens welcome you to view the exhibition during a pay-what-you-wish opening reception on Friday, July 13, 2018, from 6:00 – 9:00 PM. Enjoy a complimentary glass of Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, and a chat with Zagar and the staff about these amazing creations!
