In the heart of Queen Village is a mystical oasis, with pieces of old recyclables and glass particles filling the cave-like walls, doors, and alleyways. Magic Gardens, brought to life by mosaic artist Isaiah Zagar, serves to inspire creativity and community engagement by educating the public about art.

Filled with old wheels, glass bottles, bike spokes, and other discarded objects, Magic Gardens is inspired by Zagar’s travels and experiences with other artists.

In addition to the standard mosaics, there are also specialized exhibitions for extended periods of time - the most recent titled “Warren Muller: On and Off the Wall,” which shines a light on the galleries with new wall hangings, chandeliers and wall pieces.
