Matthew C. LeiningerMatthew C. Leininger has obtained a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Fine Arts focusing on Studio Printmaking from the Wright State University and the Ohio University.

He has worked at three institutions since 1997 moving his family from Ohio to Oklahoma and back to Ohio in 2009. He is a former member of the American Alliance of Museums and was selected to be a Peer Reviewer to help and assist in helping with the accreditation of institutions with the AAM as well a Treasurer elect for the Registrars Committee. He was an ex-officio staff member of three board committees at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and was made a Senior Staff member after three months of being hired at the Cincinnati Art Museum. He has been interviewed by a Local 12 news station in Cincinnati regarding his investigation on Mark Landis, has been interviewed and published regarding this case in The Art Newspaper, New York Times, Financial Times, Maxim as well as many newspapers, online blogs, and other social media outlets. An Emmy and Oscar Award nominated film crew from New York City has been to his residence and to institutions that have had dealings with Landis to begin filming a documentary and this crew has also interviewed and filmed Landis making his forgeries. He has followed this case of Mark Landis since August 7, 2008 and continues to the present. Mr. Leininger has been asked to lecture, present and submit articles on this case from well known not for profit institutions and conferences. He currently lives in Cincinnati and is using his experience as a registrar to further his education, and to use his experience to inform others of his process, findings and results to hopefully halt this type of scheme in the future.
