“Our clocks keep track, ticking past seconds, minutes, hours, days. In Grand Central, the clock stands sentinel, measuring moments and bearing witness to the millions of people who stream through as we bustle to and from our family, our work, our passions, our lives,” said curator Amy Hausmann, Deputy Director, MTA Arts for Transit, in describing the inspiration for ON TIME/Grand Central at 100. “Grand Central is a place where past, present and future come together.
