Huguette Clark- Her Life, Art & Legacy
Date: 5/9/2014

Huguette Clark- Her Life, Art & Legacy
Friday, May 9 at 3:00 p.m.
Members $10/ Guests $15. Reservations required.

Join us for an encore lecture and update on the developing story of late local heiress and artist Huguette M. Clark. Bill Dedman, Pulitzer-prize winner and author of Empty Mansions- The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune, will reveal new details of her life, her art and instrument collection, and the future of her beloved Santa Barbara estate “Bellosguardo.” The book, named one of the “Best Books of the Year” by The New York Times, was recently optioned by a Hollywood filmmaker. It explores the fascinating life and generosity of a true eccentric, a last jewel of the Gilded Age, who lived life on her own terms. Lecture generously sponsored by Eleanor Van Cott
