Artists from the California Art Club painted portraits of the estate that were later auctioned off.

All funds from the live auction go toward the restoration of the 1934 windmill on the estate.

People could buy single tickets or a whole table.

The Chapman Estate Foundation’s mission supports cultural experiences and provides for the preservation of the Estate while honoring Clifford Chapman’s legacy.
