Breaking Criminal Traditions: The Art of Influence

November 7th – January 3rd, 2015
Opening Reception: Friday, November 7th 6:30-9:00pm

The Art of Influence: Breaking Criminal Traditions is a fine art exhibition created to raise awareness of global criminal traditions. Criminal traditions are ancient, ongoing rituals, that kill or maim millions each year, yet are rarely considered crimes. They include honor killing, child marriage, acid attacks, bride burning and more. In creating awareness and beginning a dialogue, we can support those affected by encouraging change – change that can only come from within each culture.

Featuring some of the country’s most accomplished artists working with noted curator / painter Chuck Gniech, author/TED speaker Cheryl Jefferson, and award winning painter Richard Laurent, the exhibit is an exploration of human rights and criminal traditions in an effort to create awareness, starting with the current and future policy influencers found in law schools, seated politicians and the community at large.

As you know, Jasmin is choreographing a piece specifically for the BCT opening at Highland Park based on her extensive expertise in Middle Eastern dance. The dance will integrate with projected images of work from BCT artists and other images which have been selected and reviewed by Chuck, co-producer Richard Laurent, Jasmin, and myself. As an internationally known and respected artist, Jasmin is creating this piece to be a true expression of the need for awareness around these human rights issues. Plans call for the images to be projected on an exquisite white dress which will function as a canvas for the visuals. The end result will be something poignant, beautiful, tasteful and moving.

Please join us for the opening reception, Friday November 7th from 6:30-9:00pm. Featuring music, appetizers, and drinks as well as a special choreographed performance by Jasmin Jahal, international artist of contemporary, folkloric and classical dance from the Middle East. Admission is free and open to the public.
