    Burrison Gallery, Inn at Penn
    The Burrison Gallery is set to open a new exhibition next Thursday, Sept. 8, featuring the photography of Penn alumnus, Andrew Feiler (W ’84). The exhibition features photographs that depict Morris Brown College, one of the 105 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Morris Brown was originally established in 1881 and was all but shut down in 2002 after years of fiscal hardship and a high-profile mismanagement scandal.

    An opening reception takes place at The Burrison Gallery on Sept. 8 from 5:00–8:00 PM and features a book signing by the artist as well as a discussion between Feiler and HBCU scholar and Penn Professor, Marybeth Gasman. The gallery is located in the University Club at Penn on the 2nd floor of The Inn at Penn, 3611 Walnut Street, and the exhibition runs through Sept. 30.

    In 2002, Morris Brown lost federal accreditation due to a scandal involving false declarations of enrolled students by the college’s administration. The fallout of the scandal left Morris Brown in financial disarray, although its current leadership vows to revive the school and the college still continues to educate students even today.

    Feiler’s photos depict “classrooms, dorms, gym facilities, and other spaces no longer alive with students, faculty, and staff but rather mired in a state of uncertainty where hopes of normality’s return mutely battle a host of unwelcome alternate futures.” Feiler hopes that his photos will project a new layer of meaning onto the American collegiate story and “open minds, trigger emotion, stimulate discussion, and, perhaps, prompt action.”

    The exhibition’s sponsors include The Burrison Gallery, Office of the Curator, Penn Alumni Relations, Office of the Executive Vice President, and the Penn Center for Minority Serving Institutions.

    Feiler, a fifth-generation Georgian, is an award-winning photographer whose work has been featured in museums, galleries, and magazines and is in a number of public and private collections. His photography is focused on the contemporary complexities of the American South. More of his work can be found at andrewfeiler.com
