Mosaics of Philadelphia's South Street Area

One of the most renowned mosaic artists of the America's is Isaiah Zagar. After serving in Peru for 3 years with the Peace Corps in the 1960's and being inspired by Peruvian Folk Art, he and his wife moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he opened an art gallery. Soon after he had mosaiced it to create a folk art atmosphere for the gallery.
These buildings are one block south of South Street on Kater Street near the intersection of Adler Street.
This facade is on Adler Street at the intersection of South Street. The address is 106 South Street.
When you stand at this wall you can see the teserae is comprised of just about anything made of glass or ceramics and a few metalic items too.
