Event Details

CEAA invites alumni to join them for night at The Frick Collection. The event will feature a guided private tour of the museum, followed by a 30 minute private admission to view the Precision and Splendor: Clocks and Watches at The Frick CollectionThe Frick Collection has one of the most important public collections of European timepieces in the United States, much of it acquired through the 1999 bequest of the New York collector Winthrop Kellogg Edey. This extraordinary gift of thirty-eight watches and clocks dating from the Renaissance to the early nineteenth century covers the art of horology in France, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. On this Feb 1st tour, visitors will have another opportunity to explore the breadth and significance of the Edey collection through an exhibition that presents fourteen watches and eleven clocks from his bequest.

The exhibition illustrates the stylistic and technical developments of timepieces from 1500 to 1830. Edey's remarkable collection of Renaissance clocks is represented by a master work by Pierre de Fobis (see above) and his interest in watches by significant examples signed by George Smith, Henry Arlaud, Pierre Huaud, Julien Le Roy, Thomas Mudge, and Abraham-Louis and Antoine-Louis Breguet. Also included in this presentation are five spectacular clocks on loan from Horace (Woody) Brock. Never before seen in New York City, they reflect the precision and splendor of the art of clockmaking in eighteenth-century France. This exhibition is organized by Charlotte Vignon, Associate Curator of Decorative Arts.

The night will continue with a private reception with wine and hors d’oeuvres at the Caravaggio Restaurant.  

Space is very limited, so sign up early! Tickets are discounted to only $30 each ($20 for the first 20 to register) (over $125 value) and limited to 2 per alumnus/a.

Columbia Engineering Alumni Association

The Columbia Engineering Alumni Association (CEAA) is an independent corporation founded in 1882 to foster and deepen the bonds of fellowship between the alumni, faculty and students of the Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science. Every graduate of the School is automatically a member, and there are no dues or membership fees.

Involvement in the Columbia Engineering Alumni Association is a fun and rewarding way to keep abreast of professional developments, network with fellow engineers from industries ranging from materials science to financial services, and use your skills for the benefit of your Alma Mater and the advancement of the engineering profession. Some opportunities for involvement require a commitment of only a few hours; others are more extensive.

For more information on joining the board, contact Cliff Massey in the Office of Engineering Development and Alumni Relations by email at cam2171@columbia.edu.
