Tick Talks


Education interns at the Frick were given the opportunity to research a single timepiece from the exhibition Precision and Splendor: Clocks and Watches at the Frick Collection and present a brief talk on the subject as part of the series Tick Talks. These talks were held for the public throughout the summer of 2013, and as a final project, the interns created short videos of their work.
