ArtBabble is a collaborative project with a number of institutional partners, including Art21, Indianapolis Museum of Art, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, MoMA - The Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, and New York Public Library.
The site also provides venues for user comments and contributions. With these features, ArtBabble resembles a slightly more controlled YouTube, specifically for art. Some current videos on the site are Design by the Book, a series of four videos showing what happens when a glassblower, letterpress printer, ceramicist, pattern designer, and graphic designer use the resources of New York Public Library as inspiration for their work. Another video is on installation artist Aernout Mik discussing his exhibition at MoMA, which was recently mentioned in the June 5, 2009 Scout Report.
