Dalhousie Art Gallery

The Dalhousie Art Gallery is more than pretty pictures. Traveling exhibitions, artist talks, panel discussions, film series, catalogues, and a rich permanent collection are all tools used by the DAG to make art relevant and accessible to the university community.

We worked with the DAG on both branding and web design. Director Peter Dykhuis envisioned a website that could visually communicate the richness and variety of the gallery's programming. We worked together in developing a new website centred around an interactive timeline, where past, present, and future events and activities could be explored.

The site serves as both a calendar of upcoming events, and an archive into the past. In addition to events and activities, the site houses the gallery's full permanent collection of over 1,400 items, searchable and with images. Detail pages emphasize imagery, tailoring display to different screen sizes.

The site was designed and developed by Co. & Co. in Drupal 7 with a fully custom responsive theme.
