Official description

To celebrate the 60th birthday of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, Silpakorn University is holding the “Living Memories” exhibition, chronicling the Princess’s relations with the university, at its Art Centre, Wang Tha Phra campus, from Monday until May 27.

The Princess is an alumna of Silpakorn University, studying from 1977-78 and earning a master’s degree in oriental epigraphy at the Faculty of Archaeology. Her talents as an SU student will be portrayed through various exhibits presented in seven zones.

They include her rarely seen 15 paintings and 13 ceramic works, presented to the university on various occasions; her work in archaeology and epigraphy; and her six royal compositions, which were recently rearranged with her permission.

Visitors can explore the Princess’s campus life through photos of her miscellaneous personal items such as her student ID card, registration slips, notebooks, thesis and student photos.

Her genius in multiple areas is also portrayed through a display of honorary doctorates in various fields conferred on the princess by the university.

On Monday, the university is also planning to launch two digital media applications that tie in to the exhibition — “sirindhorn&su” and “sirindhorn@suexhibition” — for free download via smart gadgets.
