Two of the biggest names in American art come together under one roof for side-by-side exhibits at the Getty Center.

You now have the opportunity to experience iconic abstract expressionist, Jackson Pollock’s newly restored Mural on view at the Getty Center. Explore his signature splatter-and-drip-happy paint application technique on the piece that was  originally commissioned by art collector and dealer Peggy Guggenheim in 1943.

For another lesson in art history, head to In Focus: Ansel Adams. The exhibit features the famed landscape photographer’s “Museum Set” portfolio, which chronicles the California native’s most important works over the course of seven decades, alongside pieces from the Getty’s permanent collection.
