    Phillips is honored to partner with the Dubin Breast Center on this important sale of Contemporary Art, comprised of both established and emerging works, with proceeds directly benefiting the Center’s forthcoming initiatives and research.

    Founded in 2011 by Mount Sinai Trustees Glenn Dubin and Eva Andersson-Dubin, MD, a physician, philanthropist, and breast cancer survivor, the Dubin Breast Center of The Tisch Cancer Institute at the Mount Sinai Health System is a comprehensive breast health clinic that provides state-of-the-art patient care and conducts groundbreaking research. It is one of the few clinics in New York City to offer innovative new technologies such as 3D mammography, which provides earlier and more accurate diagnosis of breast cancer, and advanced procedures such as seed localization, which allows surgeons to target and remove breast tumors more precisely. With more than 10,000 patient visits per year, the Dubin Breast Center is a vital part of The Mount Sinai Hospital, which is ranked among the nation’s top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Representing a bold vision for breast cancer treatment and research, the Center focuses on the holistic health and wellbeing of individuals with, or at risk for, cancer. Patients receive highly personalized,
    multidisciplinary care in a calming, private, and supportive setting. The intricate relationship between art and health is evident at the Center, where carefully selected artworks are a key component of the healing environment, intended to provide patients, family members, and visitors with a sense of serenity.

    The Dubin Breast Center is dependent on philanthropy in order to provide optimal care to thousands of patients a year, regardless of their ability to pay. This benefit sale presents an outstanding opportunity both to raise funds for the Center’s important work and to showcase the talents of the artists represented in the auction. Proceeds from the sale of works generously donated by supporters of the Dubin Breast Center will directly contribute to the lifesaving services and industry leading research that are the hallmarks of the Center.

    We wish to thank the artists, collectors, and galleries without whom this sale would not be possible; their commitment to the Dubin Breast Center is also a commitment to transforming the patient experience and advancing breast cancer research. Phillips is thrilled to offer the platform upon which this important initiative can be supported and is honored to be a collaborator in this vital cause.
