The students had a great time being around celebrities and Hollywood Industry professionals. They met with Toby Domi, a world renowned independent cinematographer and Sid Mead, the famous designer of movie sets like Tron, Star Trek, Star Wars, Mission Impossible, and Aliens to name a few. Students also got to meet Car Classic regular, Jay Leno, formerly of the Tonight Show and now with his own car show called Jay Leno’s Garage on CNBC.
Besides being invited by an alumni of Art Center to the annual Car Classic, this select group of ECHS students were also invited on a tour by a member of the private faculty club The Athenaeum of the California Institute of Technology..
At the faculty club, students saw where the best minds of the 20th century gathered and dined. The notable list of former club members includes names such as Eisenstein, Van Baum, Milken, Hubble, Feynman, and many more. Below are two photographs, the first of Albert Einstein and Millikan and Hubble in front of the Athenaeum.
