Wednesday was the last chance for visitors to check out the HOPE Outdoor Gallery at its current location at 1101 Baylor Street.

SubVRsive, an Austin media house, turned the gallery into a virtual reality.

"What we're trying to do is preserve this piece of history, this moment in time so people can see it as they way it used to be," Ian Villamin, Vice President of Interactive Development at SubVRsive, said.
