Each cardholder will be allowed to bring up to 2 guests into the exhibit. Everyone will be able to interact with the artwork and “play” with oversized installations. There will also be complimentary food and drink inspired by childhood favorites.

Limited-edition toys will be available for purchase in the gallery and some items will be available for purchase online beginning on December 10, 2023.

“We know our Platinum Card Members are art lovers and collectors. They’re always at the forefront of what’s new and next so we’re excited to return to Miami during Art Week with an unforgettable experience that sparks nostalgia and creativity and gives Members an exclusive opportunity to expand their personal art collections with one-of-a-kind pieces from incredible artists.”

Bess Spaeth, Senior Vice President, U.S. Premium Products and Membership Rewards at American Express

Here are the artists and their individual art pieces, as shared by American Express:

  • Salehe Bembury: A Spunge vinyl toy, a three-dimensional art piece.
  • Eny Lee Parker: “Benny” a one-of-a-kind classic plush toy handcrafted from a mix of high-end leftover upholstery fabrics, making them not only unique and collectible but also environmentally responsible.
  • Serban Ionescu: “City of Canals,” a unique chessboard and hand-sculpted chess piece set resembling previous and future works.
  • Surin Kim: A colorful toy car inscribed with “be happy and rich” in Korean, wishing good luck and wealth to others.
  • Kumkum Fernando: “Tomorrow,” a toy robot crafted from wood embedded with neodymium magnets. The design employs traditional Vietnamese techniques leveraging stencils and hand-silk screened patterns.

In addition to these listed artists, there will be a number of surprise artists on hand as well.

Hot Tip:

To enter, you’ll need your eligible card, so don’t forgot to bring it with you, along with a photo ID.
