Association of Arts Admin...

The Association of Arts Administration Educators (AAAE) represents college and university graduate and undergraduate programs in arts administration, encompassing training in the management of visual, performing, literary, media, cultural and arts service organizations. Founded in 1975, the AAAE was created to provide a forum for communication among its members and advocate formal training and high standards of education for arts administrators. The Association publishes member research in arts management and administration to strengthen the understanding of arts management issues in the academic and professional fields. AAAE approached PerformSites to redesign their site to make it easier to manage their stream of content. Their old site was hard to update and offered few options for the public to sort and search for member programs, jobs and publications. The WordPress-based system we built allows all members to login and update their profiles and other content without ever seeing the WordPress admin interface. A customized set of permissions integrates with their FreshBooks account and their other accounting needs around collecting membership dues, jobs listing fees and more. Visit live...

FOR-SITE Foundation

The FOR-SITE Foundation is dedicated to the idea that art can inspire fresh thinking and important dialogue about our natural and cultural environment. Through exhibitions, commissions, artist residencies, and education programs, FOR-SITE supports the creation and presentation of innovative art about place. Recent high profile projects include Andy Goldsworthy in the Presidio and International Orange at Fort Point. The site was a team collaboration with Ari Salomon leading development. The connection between current and past projects and the display of “parent” and “child” projects required a deep investigation and reworking of how the organization presents its core projects. Interconnected artists, projects and news items make for a smooth way to navigate deep content. This project was coordinated with an update to their branding and designed to accomodate a change of focus of the organization as it grew into it’s second decade. Visit live...
