Thailand's oldest and most venerable fine art university, Silpakorn contains a small museum and a courtyard sculpture dedicated to its founder (Silpa Bhirasri, aka Corrado Feroci, an Italian who was commissioned in the 1920s to sculpt such landmarks as the Rama I statue and the Democracy Monument). Hosting exhibitions by students, masters and foreign artists-in-residence, the serene Silpakorn Art Centre Gallery was part of Tha Phra Palace. The faculties of architecture, decorative arts, and painting, sculpture and graphic arts all have galleries.
