Kelsey in Focus: A New Program

The Kelsey Museum has over 100,000 objects in its collection but can only display a small fraction of them at any given time. A generous donor has given funds for a new program, Kelsey in Focus, a space dedicated to showcasing seldom-seen objects and highlighting the research of our curators, faculty, staff, and students.
