Official description

The Millennium Hilton Bangkok is holding an art exhibition that conveys a message of love for the most important waterway for Thai people, the Chao Phraya River.

Held to celebrate its receiving 2013 World Luxury Hotel Award in the Best Luxury Rooftop View Hotel in Asia category, the "360 Degrees of My Beloved Chao Phraya River" exhibition showcases five photographs and five paintings that portray the beautiful scenery of the river by which the hotel is located.

They were created by famous Thai artists and celebrities including MR Chalermchatri Yugala, Annop Srisadja (aka Pe Srinam), Chamni Thipmanee, Manaswin Nantasen (aka Tik Shiro), Jirapat Pitpreecha, Kritsana Chaikitwattana and Songkran Weerapong.

The collection also includes a sculptural piece by Silpathorn artist Saiyart Sema-ngern and the original note of Chiranan Pitpreecha's best known poem Flowers Will Bloom (Dok Mai Ja Baan ).

The poem was composed during the Thai student movement in 1973 that toppled the military rule and opened a new era of democracy for Thailand. It was a source of great inspiration for university students at the time to rise and fight for social justice by using the image of blooming flowers.

All of the 12 pieces are also open for an auction which will close on the last day of the exhibition. All proceeds will go to support the sustainable water management at Utokapat Foundation under the royal patronage of HM the King.

There is no admission fee. Call 02-422-2000.
