Set & Drift is a collaborative studio specializing in art placement. We closely with artists and clients to place artwork and produce commissions customized to each project's vision. We believe an art program is an opportunity for storytelling, to interact with and engage an audience.


Stacy Kelley directs Set & Drift, drawing upon 14 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 public spaces, hospitality, and residential projects throughout Southern California and beyond. Stacy and Sean also run graphic design agency Mother Sponge.
