Chief Digital Information Officer
Jane Alexander is the Chief Digital Information Officer for The Cleveland Museum of Art (CMA). Jane is responsible for creating iterative digital projects that support a vision for innovation, technology implementation, and digital transformation best applied to the CMA’s mission. Jane oversees the strategy, concept, design, and implementation of interactive experiences, as well as the backend applications and infrastructure design.
In 2013, under her leadership, the CMA completed the award-winning Gallery One and the revolutionary mobile app that transformed the museum into one of the most technologically advanced and engaging art destinations in the world. In September 2017, CMA launched ARTLENS Gallery, the next iteration of CMA’s multi-faceted, innovative experience that encourages visitors to look closer, dive deeper, and engage with the museum’s collection. Transitioning away from the touchscreen technology, the Exhibition interactives use barrier-free, gesture-sensing projections, facial recognition, and eye tracking technology. Jane has been invited to speak at national and international conferences on the museum’s achievements.
Before moving to Cleveland, Jane developed and directed Columbia University’s acclaimed distance education program, as well as the development of university-wide resources for instructional technology and methodology. In Cleveland, Jane has worked on several high-profile projects, notably as the virtual Chief Technology Officer to the Great Lakes Science Center, as well as the technology director and design consultant to Frank Gehry's Peter B. Lewis Campus at Case Western Reserve University.
Alexander holds a Bachelor’s of Science and a Master’s of Science in Applied Mathematics as well as a Bachelor’s of Arts in Architecture from Columbia University.
