ArtBabble's Second Wave

This morning, ArtBabble.org (the Indianapolis Museum of Arts online endeavor to create a community and archive of art museum/institution created video content) will launch with 10 new partners and a whole lot more videos. For those of you keeping score, that will bring the total now to 17 partners in all. These partnerships have been in the works for some time, so when you get a little time on your hands whether at home or at work (just tell your boss it's research), I would recommend checking them out and simply browse. You are bound to find something that will suit your tastes.

In the line up:
[* = new partner]

Indianapolis Museum of Art (161 videos)
The Museum of Modern Art (42 videos)
Art 21 (23 videos)
*San Jose Museum of Art (18 videos)
*KQED (15 videos)
*The Art Institute of Chicago (12 videos)
*Museum of Arts & Design (10 videos)
New York Public Library (9 videos)
Smithsonian American Art Museum (8 videos)
Los Angeles County Museum of Art (7 videos)
*Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (7 videos)
*Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (6 videos)
*Rubin Museum of Art (5 videos)
San Francisco Museum of Art (5 videos)
*Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (5 videos)
*Van Gogh Museum (4 videos)
*Norman Rockwell Museum (3 videos)

That brings the total to 340 Videos so far. [Note: This number can and will most likely continue to climb as each partner continues to upload more content.] Needless to say, but that is an impressive amount of content to keep us all busy for a few days at least.

For those of you who know me well, know of my love of classic sci fi, Flash Gordon serials, robots and the like. So I was pleased to be able to watch a couple videos by the San Jose Museum of Art, produced in conjunction with their exhibition Robots: Evolution of a Cultural Icon. One of these videos was Robots - Curator Label - Clayton Bailey. Those robots are great! Now if you will all pardon me, I am going to go watch some more videos...
