In 2007 he created the world's first free-form mosaic for the 50th anniversary of the GRAMMY Awards®. He serves as the art director for Project S.N.A.P., a non-profit organization designed to give K–12 students and their families the opportunity to speak out on community issues using art as medium to convey their message. Feinson's fourth book, The Zebra's Stripes: Insights into Animal Vision, is scheduled for release in early 2015.
