Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art
The Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art is one of the oldest museums in the state of Oklahoma. Founded in 1919, the museum has spent decades showcasing exquisite art from around the globe right in the heart of Shawnee. In addition to their amazing collections and exhibitions, MGMOA also offers classes and workshops to the community, making them an invaluable asset to Shawnee and Oklahoma overall. When the museum needed to refresh their website to better match their stellar reputation, Levant was ready and willing to help.

The museum relies on their website to showcase the wealth of information to the public about art, classes, and events occurring at MGMOA. Their goal was to find a way to present this information without overwhelming site visitors, while maintaining an easy-to-navigate, intuitive experience.

“We were pretty specific about what we wanted from Levant,” said Donna Merkt, MGMOA’s Curator of Education. “Ryan, Brahm, and the staff really worked hard to make it happen. This large site required a long build. We’re a small staff, without anyone specifically taking on the task of marketing or web management, so we all had to chip in.”

MGMOA wanted to display important information prominently, like hours and address and calls-to-action, with an integration of a newsletter signup and a simplified donation page for the public to easily share funds with the museum. Since it was a large site, Donna and the MGMOA staff were a little nervous about how the web design process would go.

“At times, it was overwhelming,” she said. “But Levant did a good job of rallying us to keep things moving. Further, I needed some custom items to make it easier for us to update the website, and the Levant team came through.”

Donna said the site’s new design is a major improvement over their old site; the clean and flexible mobile-friendly design checks all boxes for the museum’s must-have features. Since the site launched, site visitors now experience a fresh website with a simple layout, and easily accessible information for all museum exhibitions, collections, and events.

“We appreciate the creativity and professionalism exhibited by the Levant team. We also appreciate the friendly rapport they have sought to build--their staff has visited the museum, even with their families. We’ve really enjoyed working with Levant.”
