Philly's Magic Gardens is the starting point for an Isaiah Zagar scavenger hunt this Thursday. It's free, but participants can make donations to the Morris Animal Refuge along the way.
Although Zager’s work can be found all around Philly, the adventure, which starts and ends at PMG at 10th and South streets, takes participants on an exploration around Washington Square West and Bella Vista, as folks specifically search for the depictions of animals hidden in the public art.
