The Cleveland Clinic is selling art to benefit hearts. WKSU’s Phil de Oliveira reports next month’s auction at Christie’s in New York will include items from the Clinic’s collection.

The eight works for sale include sculptures and paintings by Roy Lichtenstein, Marc Chagall, and Pablo Picasso.

The artworks were donated to the Cleveland Clinic by philanthropist and entrepreneur Sydell Miller, whose collection spans impressionist and modern art.
