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 further opportunities for art and design in the Southern California region and beyond.

Stacy Kelley directs Set & Drift, drawing upon 15 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, multidisciplinary 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 places and commissions works by an expanding network of artists and has placed art in commercial and residential projects throughout Southern California and beyond.
