The Rema Hort Mann Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of others with Grants designed to help with Life, Art and Community. The Foundation’s Quality of Life Grants connect patients who are isolated with their family and friends while undergoing treatment for cancer, at a time when they need support the most. We recognize promising visual artists at a critical juncture in their creative development and artistic careers; many of our artist alumni, including Kehinde Wiley, Mickalene Thomas, Sarah Sze, Dana Schutz, Jennifer Packer, Keltie Ferris, David Alekhougie, Sable Elyse Smith, Cheyenne Julian, Paul Sepuya and Christina Quarles are represented by major galleries and their works housed in numerous museums, public and private American and International collections. 
These Honorees embody the Foundation’s enduring values:

Mickalene Thomas is a visual artist, filmmaker, and curator whose multidisciplinary practice intersects with art history and popular culture related to ideologies of self-image, female sexuality, beauty and power that examine how identity, gender, and subjectivity have been informed by the fetishization of the female body throughout history. Artist Alumni Mickalene will be honored with the Art and Social Justice Award.

Dr. Elisa Port is the Chief of Breast Surgery and professor of surgery at Mount Sinai Health System, and the Director of the Dubin Breast Center. Dr. Port performs hundreds of operations each year and is a leading expert in sentinel-node biopsy. Her research has been widely published in numerous journals, including the Journal of the American College of Surgeons, Annals of Surgery, and Cancer Research. Dr. Port and her husband Jeff are also art collectors. They purchased their first artwork in 1998 from Marianne Boesky when she first opened on 51 Green Street.  This space also happened to be situated directly next door to Tilton Gallery where Susan Hort was a partner. Fast forward to 2012, Dr. Port and Marianne were reintroduced, only this time not at a gallery event, but when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to Dr. Port’s wise guidance and commitment to her patients, Marianne is now cancer free and sits on the advisory board of the Dubin Breast Center at the Mount Sinai Hospital. Dr. Elisa Port and Marianne Boesky will be honored with the Quality of Life Award for their duel dedication to the cancer and the contemporary arts communities.Marianne Boesky established her eponymous gallery in New York in 1996. Since its inception, the gallery has come to represent and support the work of emerging and established contemporary artists of all media and genres. Her roster currently includes artists such as Ghada Amer, Jennifer Bartlett, Sanford Biggers and Marianne Boesky Gallery was also instrumental in launching the careers of Sarah Sze as well Yoshitomo Nara, Lisa Yuskavage and Takashi Murakami among others.  Her gallery is committed to amplifying the international profiles of her dynamic roster of artists through collaborative initiatives that support their needs and interests around the globe.
