COLOR THE WORLD YELLOW

To Pharrell Williams, yellow is the color of curiosity — a bold indicator of your purpose, and the purposeful mark you can leave on the world. It’s a beacon of light that demands attention and encourages followership as it illuminates people, places, and passions that have been forgotten or go unseen. It exemplifies the brighter future that we all have the power to shape when we are focused with our advocacy and with our dollars.

 

LET IT SHINE

With your ticket purchase, Platinum Card Members will have the opportunity to receive a limited-edition** yellow Platinum Card® from American Express, to show your support of the arts every time you swipe

OUR COLLABORATORS

Art installations by American Express Platinum Collective member and mutli-disciplinary artist, Daniel Arsham, invite Yellow Ball guests to move through three unique immersive art experiences.

 

The artwork will challenge visitors’ expectations, inspire creativity, and invoke the possibilities of an enriching arts education.

 

Each of Arsham’s art installations has been designed exclusively for the Yellow Ball, and relate to the artist’s larger body of work.

The chef and owner of two Michelin starred restaurant Atelier Crenn of San Francisco and member of the Global Dining Collection Chef Dominique Crenn focuses on cuisine as a craft and the community as an inspiration.

 

She was awarded the honor of World’s Best Female Chef in 2016 by San Pellegrino’s 50 Best, and is an active member in the international culinary community, promoting innovation, sustainability, and equality, through her collaboration with Basque Culinary Center, TasTAFE, and others.

Established in 1952, Young Audiences Arts for Learning’s mission is to inspire young people and expand their learning through the arts.

 

As the nation’s largest arts in education learning network, Young Audiences serves more than 5 million children and youth each year in 8,000 schools and community centers across the country through its diverse network of 30 affiliates.

Over thirty years ago, American Express set the standard for premium Card Membership by creating the Platinum Card®.

 

Today, we’re redefining what Platinum means by going beyond premium service and benefits to connect our Card Members with what matters most, offering them powerful backing and opportunities to connect through immersive experiences.

 

Partnering with change agents like Pharrell Williams, we’re also dedicated to fostering social good around the world by working with our Card Member community to make a difference.

** Platinum Card Members who purchase a ticket to the Yellow Ball may request a limited edition yellow Platinum Card® from American Express during the check-out process. This card can serve as a lasting reminder of your generosity and commitment to protect arts education for our country’s children. You will have access to all of the same (and no additional) features and benefits with your yellow Platinum Card that you have with your current Platinum Card. Upon request, your yellow Platinum Card will be issued and delivered to you within 4-6 weeks after the Yellow Ball. You may continue to use your existing Platinum Card to make purchases until you confirm that you received your yellow Platinum Card. The yellow Platinum Card® can only be issued once to the Basic Card Member. Additional Platinum Card Members are not eligible to receive a yellow Platinum Card. If your yellow Platinum Card is lost, stolen, damaged, expires or otherwise needs to be replaced, you can request a replacement Platinum Card, which will not be the yellow Platinum Card. There is no need to update your Card information with merchants who automatically bill your Platinum Card unless you are specifically asked to do so. If necessary, you will receive an email or letter advising you of any updates the merchant may need.
