V Gallery x Museum: A Fusion of History and Creativity
Nestled within the heart of Naga City, the V Gallery x Museum stands as a remarkable testament to the intersection of art, heritage, and education. Opened on January 28, 2023, this innovative establishment is the brainchild of the Naga College Foundation, Inc., breathing new life into a historic residence with an exceptional transformation.
Formerly belonging to the esteemed Hernandez Family, the house and its expansive grounds have now found new purpose under the stewardship of the Naga College Foundation. A bastion of tradition, the Foundation chose to restore the house to its original American Period Architectural Design, preserving its unique charm while seamlessly integrating it into the fabric of modernity.
V Gallery x Museum is a convergence point, where the past and present coalesce in a harmonious blend of heritage and ingenuity. It symbolizes the Naga College Foundation’s commitment to honoring its origins while fostering the growth and expression of the arts in its community.
