Anna Schuleit Haber is a visual artist whose work lies at the intersection of painting, drawing, installation art, architecture, history, and community. Her works have ranged from museum installations made with paint, to large-scale projects in forests, on uninhabited islands, and in psychiatric institutions, using extensive sound systems, live sod, thousands of flowers, mirrors, antique telephones, bodies of water, and neuroscience technologies.

Anna attended high school in the United States at Northfield Mount Hermon School before studying painting and art history at the Rhode Island School of Design where she received her B.F.A. in 1998, and creative writing / book arts at Dartmouth College (M.A.L.S. in 2005).[1] In 2013 Schuleit married composer Yotam Haber.[2]

Her work has been featured in exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; the University of Massachusetts Amherst; Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine; the Brattleboro Museum & Art Center; The Matzo Files, New York; the Mousonturm, Frankfurt, Germany; and the Carpenter Center at Harvard University, among others.[3]

She has been a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the RISD European Honors Program in Rome, the MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, Blue Mountain Center, the Banff Center, and the Bogliasco Foundation.[4]

In 2006 Schuleit was named a MacArthur Fellow[5] for work that has "conceptual clarity, compassion, and beauty".

Recent exhibitions include a solo-show at Coleman Burke Gallery in New York City during the fall of 2009, set designs at the Chocolate Factory Theater and New York Live Arts in New York, as well as a large outdoor commission, "Just a Rumor", for the University Gallery at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, 2010-11. Most recently she served as visiting artist at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, collaborating with students on a five-part work that linked specific color combinations in her paint palette with musical intervals. The project, "Room for Five", was premiered in the 2012 Warren and Patricia Benson Forum on Creativity.

Her current projects revolve around aspects of seriality, memory, and a collaborative alphabet.
