10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Virtual (On Zoom)
In the first part of the presentation, Magic Gardens Director Emily Smith will present the Magic Gardens and the work of Isaiah Zagar, focusing on the significance of the Painted Bride mosaic in his opus. After a court ruling last fall allowed for the potential demolition of the much-beloved Zagar mosaic murals at the Painted Bride, the fate of this public art looked grim. In a revised plan, architect-developer Shimi Zakin created a design that would incorporate the Zagar mural and preserve this piece of public art.
In the second part of the presentation, Shimi Zakin will present the design solution: a thoughtful and creative work of architecture which maintains the existing shell of the building, protecting and highlighting the mosaic.
