The Art of Influence:

Breaking Criminal Traditions

The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions is a fine art exhibition of nonthreatening art objects that expose the audience to a variety of current human rights atrocities. The pieces presented in the exhibition only allude to the issues at hand: it is the viewer’s mind that makes the leap from beautiful art object to a darker reality. Criminal Traditions are ongoing, centuries-old rituals that kill or maim millions each year – yet aren't considered crimes. The mission is to translate the experience of fine art into social action and strategies for community engagement – encouraging the viewer to consider alternative perspectives and begin a dialogue in an attempt to promote social change.

This exhibit was organized and curated by Charles Gniech. Gniech holds both an MFA and a BFA from Northern Illinois University. He is an associate professor of graphic design at Joliet Junior College and has been teaching at various colleges and universities for more than 25 years.
