Lied Center for Performing Arts
The Lied Center for Performing Arts is a performing arts facility located in Lincoln, Nebraska, and is used for events such as orchestra, theater, and speakers. Providing an enhanced online experience was necessary for the Lied Center to successfully carry forth its mission to educate, inspire, and entertain the people of Nebraska through the performing arts. UNANIMOUS designed a comprehensive website for the Lied Center that provided online ticket sales, show information, venue details, and was one of the first local websites to adopt responsive design standards.
The Lied Center’s website caters to a growing mobile market and allows for greater promotion of upcoming shows and events while integrating online ticket sales. The website is event driven and offers detailed information about every upcoming show including integrated video promos and ticket prices. Visitors to the website can also explore rental spaces, learn more about the Lied Center, and easily give donations.

Online Ticket Sales
UNANIMOUS developed an online ticket sales component for the Lied Center’s website. Visitors can easily purchase tickets to upcoming events and use a visual map to find available seats by section and price. The streamlined ticket sales have been a huge time saver for the Lied Center staff, and its patrons as well.
360 Virtual Tour
UNANIMOUS photographed and built a 360º tour for the Lied Center’s Lied Commons rental space. The interactive tour allows online visitors the chance to explore the space from their computer or phone. 360º tours are a great option to give an online sense of the space for those wanting to host events in large venues or rental spaces.
