ARTandVR is located in a stunning cathedral with a rich history linked to the transformation of San Francisco.
Build in 1912, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, was the worshipping place for many Spanish speaking Christians. In 2016, GVA Capitol purchased the building to transform it into a meeting place for thought leaders to gather and innovate.
"For a whole century it served as a place for people to come with their dreams and challenges, help and support each other and connect," GVA co-founder Cherkashin told SFist. "We needed a place for an open public forum to inspire free flow of thoughts and ideas on innovation."
