“Dream Garden” threatened again

In 2004, a century-old mural in Philadelphia’s Curtis Center was about to be removed to Las Vegas, Nevada and reinstalled in a casino. A concerted effort led to the purchase of the mural—a stained-glass collaboration by Maxfield Parrish and Louis Comfort Tiffany—by the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts under terms that required the mural remain in Philadelphia. Today, the mural is threatened again, this time by renovations to the Curtis Center that houses it.
