Silpa Bhirasri Memorial & MuseumFree: All time

Born in Florence, Corrado Feroci was invited to Thailand during the reign of King Rama VI to teach Western sculpture at the Fine Arts Department of the Ministry of Palace Affairs. Due to the circumstances during World War II, Feroci changed his name to Silpa Bhirasri and became a Thai national to avoid arrest by occupying Japanese army.  This museum memorizes him as the “father of modern art in Thailand.” Bhirasri was instrumental in the founding of Silpakorn Fine Arts University, as well as in the mentoring of many of the country’s leading modern artists.
