A face familiar to employees of Lucasfilm’s Digital Arts Center at San Francisco’s Presidio can now be found at Lucas’s own alma-mater, USC, courtesy of sculptor Lawrence Noble.
Cinematic innovator Eadweard Muybridge, whose bronze likeness shares company with television inventor Philo T. Farnsworth, special effects pioneer Willis O’Brien, and even Jedi Master Yoda at Lucasfilm’s Presidio complex, has also been installed at the University of Southern California’s campus, famous among other things for its cinema department (of which George Lucas was a student). The Muybridge bronze comes as a gift from Lucas, who has long been a supporter of cinematic arts in education since his days at the university.
