Chef Ferran Adrià at the 92Y, Jackson Pollock at The Getty, and a Concrete Paradise in Miami

NEW YORK

Consider yourself beyond lucky if you had the honorary experience to taste the treasures that revolutionary Chef Ferran Adrià carefully whipped up in the kitchen at elBulli, the restaurant that turned away 1,992,000 diners annually, serving only .4% of table requests. Though elBulli's doors are now shuttered to the public, Ferran and his team set up the elBulli foundation and have a gift to present you: a seven-volume set archiving every recipe created in the last 6 years. If you're bold enough you can try one of his famous dishes at home, he's on tour with the new book so maybe you can ask him for a few tips.

LOS ANGELES

When Peggy Guggenheim commissioned Jackson Pollock to make Mural in 1943, she's probably didn't anticipate that the painting hanging in her entryway would become one of the most iconic twentieth century works. After extensive study and treatment at the Getty Museum and Conservation Institute, Mural is being exhibited alongside findings from the museum's research.
