Isaiah Zagar’s outdoor mosaics, plastered on the sides of buildings all over the Bella Vista neighborhood and beyond, were inspired by international artists who’ve created similar environments around the world. The PMG pays tribute to these creators, who have played an important role in transforming Philadelphia as we know it into a multifaceted, shimmering tapestry of found objects.
