Blackbaud Customers Nominated for a Webby Award
Congratulations to three of our Arts & Culture clients, the World Chess Hall of Fame, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and the Museum of Fine Arts Boston on their nominations for a Webby Award! Each are nominated for their website, in the Cultural Institution category.
The World Chess Hall of Fame is an Altru user, so we’re a little biased . Their site – created by Toky Branding + Design is amazing.
Good luck and congratulations again to the nominees! Be sure to vote for your favorite.
About the WCHOF: Originally known as the U.S. Chess Hall of Fame, the museum opened in 1988 in New Windsor, New York, with an exhibition featuring a book of chess openings signed by Bobby Fischer, the Paul Morphy silver set, and cardboard plaques honoring past grandmasters.
In 2001, the institution moved into a new, multi-million dollar facility at the Excalibur Electronics headquarters in Miami, Florida and was renamed the World Chess Hall of Fame and Sidney Samole Museum.
Due to the vibrancy of Saint Louis and the growing international reputation of the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis, it was then proposed that the contents of the Miami institution be moved to Saint Louis.
The World Chess Hall of Fame opened on September 9, 2011 in Saint Louis in the Central West End, a bustling neighborhood located directly across the street from the Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis. The World Chess Hall of Fame is housed in a historic 15,900 square-foot residence-turned-business and features the U.S. and World Chess Halls of Fame, displays of artifacts from the permanent collection, and temporary exhibitions highlighting the great players, historic games, and rich cultural history of chess.
