de Saisset Museum

South Bay's free museum of art and history

Ongoing Collections Research

In Fall 2010, the de Saisset Museum opened The Saints of Mission Santa Clara: Discovering the Meaning Behind the Art, an exhibition organized by guest curator, Maureen Bourbin, that highlights her recent research on the Mission-era paintings housed in our collection.

The de Saisset Museum has an ongoing need to conduct research on the more than 11,000 objects in the collection. Students and other researchers interested in potential projects are invited to contact Collections Manager Jean MacDougall at 408.554.6877 or for more information.

The de Saisset welcomes requests from faculty, students, and researchers to view and study our collections.
