You may not know the name Isaiah Zagar but if you’ve ever been to the Bella Vista neighborhood in South Philadelphia or walked past the Super Fresh on South Street you are undoubtedly familiar with his work.

WHYY’s Arts and Culture reporter, Alex Schmidt talked to Jeremiah Zagar, the artist’s son, whose film, In A Dream tells the story of his artist family. The younger Zagar talks about past portrayals of his family and his surprise at the reception that the film received at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, TX.
