Digital mixed-media artist Anne Spalter is an academic pioneer who founded the original digital fine arts programs at Brown University and The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in the 1990s. With a decades-long goal of integrating art and technology, Spalter has authored over a dozen academic papers and the seminal, internationally taught textbook, The Computer in the Visual Arts (Addison-Wesley, 1999).

Spalter’s classical arts education (she received an MFA in painting from RISD) combined with her foundational command of digital art theory and practice suited her well when she transitioned from academia to a full-time studio practice in 2009. Her work is in the permanent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum (London, UK); the Albright-Knox Art Gallery (Buffalo, NY); the Rhode Island School of Design Museum (Providence, RI); and others. Spalter regularly lectures on digital art practice and theory, with recent speaking venues including the National Arts Club (New York) and Design Miami, for the latter of which she discussed the cultural impact of new technologies.
