The Chamchuri Art Gallery

Professor Dr.Kasem Suvannakul, a former President of Chulalongkorn University, was aware of the importance of valuable artworks created by Thai artists. So he collected and acquired the works of renowned artists and directed the Centre for the Promotion of Culture at Chulalongkorn University to take care of these works. They have been placed in various buildings on the University campus to create an artistic atmosphere and as a way of instilling a sense of aestheticism into Chula personnel and in all those who see them by uplifting their spirit.

Later, the University deemed it appropriate to set up an art gallery on campus in order to continue supporting and publicize Thai artists’ creative artworks. So, on December 5th, 2001, it established the Art Gallery at Chulalongkorn University. Its objective is to serve as a venue for exhibiting and publicizing artwork in general, as well as Chulalongkorn University’s valuable art collection, to the general public. The works of specialists, lecturers, students, personnel and artists in general have been displayed in rotation to the public.
