Feedback

“Thanks again for organizing. It’s a valuable experience, very much enjoyed it!” — Victoria Lau (Subscribing Member; HKU BSc, 2015)

“The trip to Tsz Shan Monastery is definitely a pleasant and eye-opening experience. I appreciate how the privately owned collection is put on public display for greater good. It also leads me to rethink about art patronage which was so important in art history but is now often overshadowed by the abandance of government-owned or non-profit institutions.” — Sumyi Li (Graduate Member; HKU BA, 2009)

“The docent [Jay Mok] adopted a lively approach in explaining particular iconography of the exhibits, enabling us to fully immerse ourselves… Overall, it is a very successful visit and a good start of the activities organised by the HKU Fine Arts Alumni Association. Looking forward to more exclusive visits and events and will definitely show my support as always!” — Elaine Wong (Graduate Member; HKU BA, 2015)

“My pleasure to welcome the Fine Arts Alumni Association last Sunday to the Buddhist Art Museum. Frankly the museum is just a little baby, and after the guided tour and occasional exchanges with the alumni, I feel there’s so much more we can achieve in the future.” — Jay Mok (Assistant to Museum Director, TSM Buddhist Art Museum; HKU BA, 2019)
