Johns Hopkins April 12-30
An exhibition of eight Pop Art prints from the collection of Morton and Toby Mower will be on display Thursday, April 12, through Monday, April 30, in the F. Ross Jones Building of the Mattin Center on The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus, 3400 N. Charles St. in Baltimore. Exhibition hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
The lithographs and screenprints by artists Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring span nearly 40 years. The earliest print in the exhibition is a rare 1951 lithograph by Lichtenstein, titled "Hunter and Dog." Two of the Warhol "Hamburger" prints were screened onto primed, stretched canvases by the artist in 1986. "Icon," a heraldic silkscreen print of a barking dog, was made by Haring in 1990, shortly before his death at age 31.
The prints are from the collection of Johns Hopkins alumni and Baltimore residents Morton Mower and his wife, Toby. Morton Mower, who earned a bachelor's degree from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences in 1955, is a cardiologist and co-inventor of the implantable defibrillator, a device with many times the energy output of an implantable pacemaker. He was also a faculty member at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine earlier in his career. Toby Mower earned her nursing degree in 1976 from what was then the university's Evening College. She worked for many years as a nurse and addictions therapist before becoming a volunteer for numerous local and national organizations.
The exhibition can be found in the first-floor display cases of the Mattin Center's F. Ross Jones Building. Admission is free and open to the public.
