The Asian/Pacific/American Institute at New York University offers an online museum focusing on the transnational lives and work of four Japanese-American Chicago artists currently including essays on Michiko Itatani and James Numata, with modules on Ray Yoshida and Yasuhiro Ishimoto forthcoming.

The module geospatially maps the careers of each artist alongside related source materials as part of a large-scale digital humanities project—the Virtual Asian American Art Museum—a peer-reviewed resource that features enhanced access to an array of art and tools for presenting new collaborative scholarship on Asian American art history.
