Collaborations
Symphony: Douglas Hooker’s symphony, Without Regard to Sex, Race, or Color, speaks to the role of education in bringing African Americans into the promise of America. The composition was inspired by Andrew Feiler’s photography. World premiere: February 6, 2022, Ferst Center for the Arts, Atlanta, GA.

National Park: Andrew Feiler’s photographs have been integral to the campaign to create a Julius Rosenwald & Rosenwald Schools National Historical Park. This planned multistate park will be the first in the US National Park System to honor a Jewish American. Feiler serves on the campaign’s advisory council and his images have been featured in publications by the campaign and National Park Service.
