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.

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.

An absolutely stunning glass mosaic located in the lobby of the former Curtis Publishing building (Saturday Evening Post) This resembles a Maxfield Parrish painting, but is aglow with the reflected light from the thousands of glass fragments that compose this huge mosaic artwork.

Beautiful mosaic created with over 100,000 pieces of glass tile. Make sure to stop by when visiting the sites of historical Philadelphia. The short time you are there will be worth the visit!
