Philadelphia hidden gem and cannot miss sight is located inside the Curtis Center. The Tiffany Mosaic is a beautiful art piece open and free to the public for viewing and admiring. I highly recommend a visit here to experience a Maxfield Parrish original.

Free and pretty. Not busy, but not much to see. Worth stopping by but it will be a quick visit. You can easily get a picture of the entire mural.

This is an undiscovered treasure of Philadelphia. Located in the Curtis Center lobby one walks in and there it is, filling the whole wall in front of you. Set behind a non functioning fountain, the picture is of a garden with a valley and mountains...More

We wandered into the lobby of the Curtis building near Independence hall and were entranced by this wonderful mosaic. You can feel as well as see the influences of both Tiffany and Parrish. Well worth a stop while strolling in the historic area.
