Metropolitan Art Dublin

A green abstract painting


This site is a portfolio piece by Kevin Higgins created using Ruby on Rails and HTML/CSS/JavaScript. It was originally made for a college project. It is an e-commerce app for a fictional contemporary art gallery. I am grateful to my friends and acquaintances who graciously contributed their amateur artworks as content!

The structure of the site relies on a Postgres database of artworks, artists, and categories. Pages are generated on the server by querying the database and filling out templates with the results. Try it!

The site also features secure sign-in/registration and Paypal Sandbox integration.

Thanks for passing by.
