Set & Drift advocates for artists through events, exhibitions, and art placement. Working closely with a curated network of regional and international artists, we connect these artists with clients and develop specific programming to enhance each project's vision. Set & Drift provides creative and logistical support for every phase of a project, from concept to production. We have collaborated with partners in the design industry, as well as cultural organizations, to provide a platform for art and design in the Southern California region and beyond.

Stacy Kelley directs Set & Drift, drawing upon 16 years of experience working alongside artists and designers in the context of the interior design and architecture industry of Southern California and San Francisco. Set & Drift was founded in 2009 by Stacy and her husband, Sean Kelley, with the intent to exhibit the work of artists and designers through experiential, interdisciplinary formats. Through these events, developed in collaboration with an array of talents - from cultural organizations to chefs, designers, and musicians - Set & Drift exhibited the work of acclaimed regional and international artists. Over the years, Set & Drift has emerged as an advisory which develops programming in collaboration with cultural institutions, including most recently, San Diego’s Mingei International Museum, and has placed artwork by an expanding network of artists in commercial and residential projects throughout Southern California and beyond.
