Curtis Publishing

Washington Square 05
"The Dream Garden"

Directly across the north side of Washington Square is the Curtis Publishing Company building, formerly the home of The Saturday Evening Post, The Ladies' Home Journal and Country Gentleman magazines. Inside the lobby is "The Dream Garden," a spectacular glass mosaic of 260 different colortones made for Curtis by the Louis C. Tiffany Studios. It was based on an original painting by Maxfield Parrish. This building used to house the Norman Rockwell Museum, before the collection moved to the Atwater Kent Museum.
