I had seen a photo of this bench on another blogger’s site (and I’m ashamed to admit I don’t remember who it was, although she kindly told me where to find the bench), so when I had to go to Melbourne on business a couple of weeks ago, it was on my list of things to find.
This is a small glimpse of the mosaic wonderland that is Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens. From the website: “Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (PMG) inspires creativity and community engagement by educating the public about folk, mosaic, and visionary art. PMG preserves, interprets, and provides access to Isaiah Zagar’s unique mosaic art environment and his public murals.”
