COLORADO SPRINGS, CO.- The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center announces an exhibition of the exceptional collection of Drs. Morton and Tobia Mower, Everyday Extraordinary: From Rembrandt to Warhol on view June 24-Sept 17, 2017. Spanning several centuries, the Mower Collection begins with Rembrandt, ends with Warhol, and features masterworks from Impressionist and Modern masters in between: Monet, Renoir, Cassatt, Degas, and Picasso, to name a few.

Drs. Morton and Tobia Mower, recent transplants to Denver, Colorado, have spent 20 years assembling an enviable collection of fine art that rivals those of significant private institutions. The Mowers’ passion began with the purchase of a sweetly intimate Renoir Odalesque following the enormous professional success of Dr. Morton Mower, who patented his invention of the automatic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator in 1985. This first acquisition, initially considered to be a financial investment by these “accidental collectors,” sparked a desire for collecting fine art. The Mowers still own the Renoir, but have augmented their holdings with nearly two hundred Rembrandt etchings, scores of Impressionist paintings and prints, as well as a handful of Modern and Pop works.

Everyday Extraordinary: From Rembrandt to Warhol, Selections from the Morton and Tobia Mower Collection, encompasses this tremendous private collection nearly in its entirety. Although highlights or thematic selections have been presented regularly, thanks to the generosity of the collectors, this exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience the vision of the collection holistically – not unlike being a guest in the Mowers’ home, where Rembrandt and Warhol simultaneously grace the walls of the sitting room, and Frankenthaler and Degas adorn the foyer. Though the works and artists may seem disparate upon cursory examination, themes of everyday occurrences and common people connect many of the objects, spanning centuries and media, unifying the past with our contemporary human experience.

Dr. Morton Mower is Professor of Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Professor of Physiology and Biophysics at Howard University College of Medicine, Distinguished Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado, and patented his invention of the automatic implantable cardioverter- defibrillator in 1985 – the first of many professional successes. Dr. Tobia Mower (RN, MS, and PhD) received an Honorary PhD from Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel and is known for her work in addiction and recovery. The Mowers are the recipients of numerous awards in their respective fields and are acclaimed for their ongoing commitment to philanthropy in the arts and sciences.
