Maxfield Parrish designed this and Tiffany made the mural which is in the old Curtis Publishing Co. building near the corner of 6th and Walnut streets. It is free to enter to see this amazing work of art. Take time to go around the corner to the rear of the building to see the high enclosed atrium and lovely fountain.

My wife is a big Tiffany fan, and we both love the art of Maxfield Parrish, so I was happy to plan a visit to see the Dream Garden mosaic in the Curtis Center. As others have remarked, the Curtis Center is right across the street from the Independence Hall complex. And the mosaic is in the lobby and can... More

If you are in the Independence Mall area be sure to stop into the ground flop of the Curtis building to see the Tiffany mosaic glass version of a stunning Maxfield Parrish Painting. When I'm walking in that area I always pop in to see it, and for the rest of the day I feel as if I'd had a... More

The Dream Garden is definately a place to visit. All the walls inside and out have pieces of glass embedded in them. Seeing is believing. There's a lot to see in the Dream Garden.

Art lover or not this collaboration between Maxfield Parrish and Tiffany is a one of a kind masterpiece which is spectacular in all aspects and could easily be worth more than the building that contains it. A 5 minute walk from Independence Hall and even if you only spend another 5 minutes taking it in you will have seen an... More

What a treat ! I was a little afraid to ask at the entrance to visit this beautiful mosaic. But the receptionist was quite nice and helpful, even if you sen that they would prefer you to be a resident of the hotel. I don't think this mosaic is very well highlighted : the spotlights are kind of everywhere but... More

After your visit at independence hall go visit the Dream Garden in the Curtis center lobby across the street. The lobby is all marble and a nice place to cool off. The mosaic was a collaboration between Louis comfort Tiffany and Maxfield Parrish and is the best of its kind. From afar and close up. Further the lobby stands S... More

Take the time to walk across the street from Independence Hall to see the Wall sized mosaic in the Curtis Publishing Building. We were amazed at its beauty and craftsmanship.

I loved the interior of the Curtis Building. This work of art exemplified the beauty of the era. It takes just a few minutes to see, so worthwhile.
