Dana Schutz (born 1976) is an artist living and working in New York.

Schutz grew up in Livonia, Michigan a suburb of Detroit and graduated in 1995 from Adlai E. Stevenson High School (Livonia, Michigan). In 1999, Schutz attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture residency program.[1] She graduated with a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2000 and an MFA from Columbia University in 2002.

Her work is present in many of the major museums in North America and Europe, as well as in several important private collections. A number of her works are in the Saatchi Gallery and a large canvas titled "How we cured the plague, 2007" is currently on display in the permanent collection of the prestigious Mart Museum (Museo di Arte Moderna e Contemporanea Trento e Rovereto) in Italy [1]. She exhibits at Friedrich Petzel Gallery in New York and at Contemporary Fine Arts in Berlin. Her first European solo show, Self Eaters and the People Who Love Them, was presented by LFL Gallery at Paris's Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin. Dana Schutz's representative for the first 9 years of her career was Zach Feuer Gallery(also known as LFL Gallery). It was her early exhibitions at Zach Feuer Gallery that first brought her success with collectors - which was parlayed into her work being accepted into the collections of many important museums.[2]
