An equally important feature of the Bigfork Art/Cultural Center (BACC) website was the Exhibits and Events listing. Given the artistic nature of the content, it was of utmost importance to present the exhibitions and events in a visually stunning manner. This is because the listings often serve artists who wish to display their work, and a beautifully designed interface is crucial for showcasing their creations in the best light.
To achieve this, I developed a custom solution specifically tailored to the needs of BACC. The listing was designed to display exhibitions and events in a visually appealing layout, with high-quality images and well-structured information. Each listing linked to a detailed page with more comprehensive information about the exhibit or event, including the artist's name, the duration of the exhibition, and a description of the work.
In addition to this, I implemented friendly URLs and OpenGraph tags to optimize the listings for sharing on social media. Friendly URLs made the links more readable and easier to share, while OpenGraph tags ensured that when the links were shared on social media platforms, they displayed with a well-formatted preview, including a relevant image, title, and description.
Overall, the custom development of the Exhibit and Events listing not only provided a visually beautiful platform for artists to showcase their work but also optimized the listings for sharing on social media, thereby increasing the reach and visibility of the exhibitions and events featured on the BACC website.
