The Art Issue Dinner

American Express Platinum and Surface host a dinner in celebration of the magazine’s annual Art Issue.

Last Thursday, Surface and American Express Platinum held an intimate dinner at The Greenwich Hotel in New York City. The event, hosted by Isoul H. Harris, director of branding for Surface Studios and an Amex Platinum Brand Ambassador, was a celebration of the magazine’s annual Art Issue. The three-course meal was prepared by Andrew Carmellini and was paired with wines chosen by American Express Centurion Lounge sommelier Anthony Giglio.

“The heart of what we create at Surface Media is solid storytelling,” Harris told the intimate group of 15. “Great storytelling creates great content. I personally selected every guest at this table. Each of you are fantastic storytellers.” Among the guests were Alicia Keys and her husband, Swizz Beatz, as well as television journalist Alicia Quarles, JiaJia Fei, Kimberly Drew, Dror Benshetrit, Carlos Greer, Larry Ossei-Mensah, and Surface Media CEO Marc Lotenberg.
