The Open Practice Committee in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Chicago explores the atmospheres and attitudes that make art contemporary.

This website is unusual in that it is based on a custom WordPress theme that was built to order for OPC by Neoteric. As such, it should best be seen as an example of the degree to which WordPress themes can be modified. Very little, if any “blog like” elements remain on the site besides an overall emphasis on “event” driven content. On this note it’s worth taking a look at the site’s Events page which includes a Trumba calendar layout with an emphasis on images. The site also makes good use of WordPress categories to allow users to browse through past content.
