Mosaics bloom at this fantasy-like art showplace, presenting and preserving the work of artist Isaiah Zagar. Visitors can take a tour or attend a mosaic workshop led by the artist himself, a player in the South Street community since the 1960s.
Philly's best kept secret: a glass mosaic garden made by a single person. It's a colorful, mystical, incredibly intricate labyrinth of an artpiece.
Located on south and 10th street, roughly four blocks from your stay, this is Philadelphia favorite. Travel through the surrounding streets and you will find more of the artist's foot prints.
Great place to checkout and explore while you're in Center City. Wonderful place to take pictures.
One of the local attractions presenting Philly's mosaic art environment. Great place for pictures and a little but of a labyrinth!

“The Liberty Bell, previously called the State House Bell or Old State House Bell, is an iconic symbol of American independence, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Once placed in the steeple of the Pennsylvania State House (now renamed Independence Hall), the bell today is located in the Liberty Bell Center in Independence National Historical Park. The bell was commissioned in 1752 by the Pennsylvania Provincial Assembly from the London firm of Lester and Pack (known subsequently as the Whitechapel Bell Foundry), and was cast with the lettering "Proclaim LIBERTY Throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants Thereof", a Biblical reference from the Book of Leviticus (25:10). The bell first cracked when rung after its arrival in Philadelphia, and was twice recast by local workmen John Pass and John Stow, whose last names appear on the bell. In its early years, the bell was used to summon lawmakers to legislative sessions and to alert citizens about public meetings and proclamations.”
