Organized in conjunction with the exhibition, "Celebrations!" as part of the Museum Society’s HKU Centenary festivities, a special gala dinner will be held inside the TT Tsui Gallery for 100 members and honoured guests. This event will be a rare opportunity to dine among the exhibited works inside the historic University Museum and Art Gallery. While feasting on sumptuous food and wine, guests will be treated to a unique music performance by Asian Cultural Council Grantee Louis Siu and Vicky Shin, that resonates with the theme of "Celebrations!"
All proceeds generated from this gala dinner will be earmarked specifically as donation to UMAG. As space is limited, do look out for the invitation with reply slip that is mailed separately.
The Museum is elegantly situated in the Fung Ping Shan Building and the lower three floors of the TT Tsui Building. The Fung Ping Shan Building, originally donated to the University by Mr. Fung Ping-shan in 1932 for a Chinese book library, was converted into the Fung Ping Shan Museum of Chinese Art and Archaeology in 1953. With further extension into the TT Tsui Building in 1996, the Museum changed its name to the University Museum and Art Gallery and remains one of the oldest and most distinguished museums in Hong Kong, housing over one thousand eight hundred items of Chinese antiquities in ceramics, bronzes, paintings, Chinese oil paintings, as well as carvings in jade, wood and stone.
