Folk artist Isaiah Zagar, who owns the Eyes Gallery up the street, has transformed a once trash-strewn empty lot into a magical warren of walls and passageways, a stuccoed sculpture studded with shards of mirror, pottery, ceramic tiles, bicycle wheels, and colored bottles. Zagar is inspired by many artists, but especially by the whimsy and genius of Spain’s Antoni Gaudi. This is folk art at its best. Exploring the garden will be as much fun for you as for the children.
