Founded in 1880, the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance is one of the finest performing arts schools in the United States. Encompassing programs in dance, music, musical theatre, and theatre, the school is consistently ranked among the top performing arts schools in the country. The school's performance calendar features over 450 performances a year, while the University Musical Society offers world-class artists who represent the diverse spectrum of live performing arts. Students across the U of M campus obtain information about these performances via a calendar of events on the school’s website. Unfortunately, this calendar is hard to navigate and visually bland, which makes it ineffective and extremely difficult to use.
The objective of this assignment was to build a mobile application to serve as a dynamic, visually pleasing and easy way for patrons to view, decide, and learn about upcoming events sponsored by the School of Music, Theater, and Dance across the several venues in Ann Arbor.
