Shh! Secret tiffany treasure. Not sullied by crowds of your groups. Sit on bench, relax feet & mind in the beauty of another time. My visitors were in awe! But keep it quiet.

We saw this mosaic art when we visited the city. It’s really easy to get to and we really liked it as you didn’t need to pay or queue. It’s a really well done mosaic beauty. You can’t stop staring at it.

Well worth stopping for a look. It’s in the lobby of the Curtis building which is under reconstruction. 100,000 pieces of glass and 260 colors and tool a year to make. Great history.

Walked to Curtis Bldg to see this glass mosaic mural. It was worth the walk. It was wide and a fine work of art. You can see as if the water was flowing (waterfalls and fountains). You can take pictures and there is no entrance...More

It's been a year since we've last visited and there are several cracks in the mural, which are taped and numbered. The damage occurred during some building renovation nearly a year ago...and sadly the damage has not been repaired, nor are the fountains in the...More
