Edith Vonnegut (born 1949 in Schenectady, New York) is an American painter.

Her work — most of which juxtaposes heavenly beings and mundane activities — has been showcased at galleries across the United States, and is featured in the book Domestic Goddesses, along with her humorous commentary.

She is the daughter of novelist Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., and the sister of Mark Vonnegut and Nanette Vonnegut. She was named for her paternal grandmother, Edith Lieber Vonnegut.

She was once married to television personality Geraldo Rivera and has published under the names "Edith Vonnegut," "Edith Vonnegut Rivera" and "Edith Vonnegut Squibb."
