This bay-to-ocean “great lot,” encompassing the only privately-owned dune shack, belongs to the Brown-Malicoat-Dunigan clan, art-colony aristocracy. They include Harold Haven and Florence (Bradshaw) Brown; their daughter, the graphic artist Barbara Haven (Brown) Malicoat; and her husband, the painter Philip Malicoat, who studied with Hawthorne and Hensche, and bought this property. Barbara and Philip’s son Conrad was a sculptor whose signature was organically flowing brickwork, and their daughter Martha is an artist and teacher of fine art and sculpture. Conrad married Anne Lord. Their daughters are Robena, an artist who uses Philip’s studio (pictured), Galen, and Bronwyn. Martha married Philip Dunigan, a musician. Their daughters are Orin Barbara Dunigan, the artist Breon Dunigan, and the violist Seanad (Dunigan) Chang.
