Aaron Douglas: African American Modernist


Conference: 
MW2008
Institution: 
Spencer Museum of Art
Designer: 
Bill Kummerow (web programmer) and Amanda Schwegler (graphic designer) in-house
Why: 

In April 2007 the Spencer Museum of Art hired a half-time web programmer to work on their main web site. In May they asked for a mini-site for their Aaron Douglas exhibition with a go live date of the first week of July. Not only did they want a totally unique site, but they also wanted online registration for the conference they were hosting and a back-end tracking database to go with it. The deadline was met.I believe this is to be an attractive site that accentuates the bold and unique work of Aaron Douglas. The site is written in CSS with valid XHTML mark-up.
