It all started when we put one and one together: a celebrity chef (Charles Phan of Slanted Door) from San Francisco, and an emerging artist (TJ Bavelas) in New York, at a Flatiron penthouse in Manhattan during the famous Armory Art Show in March 2019.
Genius. The aim was to bring together a select group of like-minded high net worth investors and art collectors, and art world heavyweights (gallerists and curators) under one roof to have fun and sample delicious and exclusive cuisine by an award-winning chef, discover new contemporary art, and network, mingle, and discuss business and pleasure. Sponsors of the event had privileged access to our guests, and our guests had the best night of their life. In the words of one guest, it was “the best event of Armory Week”.
The Art Dinner was born.
