November 17, 2022: Chapter Meeting

Keynote Presentation

KEYNOTE SPEAKER: Jane Alexander, Chief Digital Information Officer, The Cleveland Museum of Art

TOPIC: “How the CMA Leads Worldwide in Digital Innovation”

ABOUT OUR SPEAKER:  Jane Alexander is the Chief Digital Information Officer for the Cleveland Museum of Art. As CDIO, Jane is responsible for creating transformative, awe-inspiring, and iterative digital projects with a visionary application of technology in support of the CMA’s mission. With a focus on organizational evolution, Jane leads strategy, concept, design, and implementation of interactive experiences. Jane believes the most important responsibility of a leader is to attract and develop great people, with a commitment to empower staff and get things done.

In 2021, Jane led the development of unprecedented innovative in-gallery experiences in Revealing Krishna: Journey to Cambodia’s Sacred Mountain. The first scholarly exhibition of its kind, Revealing Krishna provided immersive mixed-reality experiences to visitors, using technology alongside exceptional masterworks of art to tell stories of conservation, provenance, and the evolving role of museums in care and stewardship.

In 2019, under Jane’s leadership, the CMA launched a comprehensive Open Access initiative, allowing the public to share, collaborate, remix, and reuse high-resolution images of public domain works and metadata for the CMA’s entire collection.  During the Covid-19 pandemic, Jane led the creation of award-winning online tool sets, moving beyond simply shifting on-site programs to the web and taking the opportunity to think creatively about online interaction. In her 11-year tenure at the museum, Jane has moved the museum to be a data-driven, technologically forward-thinking institution.
