Description

DePaul Art Museum October 4, 2018

Viewing of Yasuhiro Ishimoto: Someday, Chicago and launch party 4:00-5:30 followed by a panel discussion from 5:30-7:00 PM.

The Virtual Asian American Art Museum (VAAAM) is a large-scale digital humanities project led by New York University Asian/Pacific/American Institute (A/P/A) and the New York University Division of Libraries in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution and Getty Research Institute which features enhanced access to an array of Asian American art and tools for presenting new collaborative scholarship on Asian American art history.
