The de Saisset Museum continually acquires objects for the permanent collection that enhance, strengthen, and expand the Museum's current holdings. Just In features approximately twenty works that have been added to the collection over the last two years. They represent a wide range of media, from painting and prints to photography. Many of these pieces are on view for the first time.

Artists represented in this exhibition include Lita Albuquerque, Ad Reinhardt, Patsy Krebs, Gregory Edwards, and Andy Warhol in addition to Santa Clara University faculty members Kathy Aoki, Kelly Detweiler, and Don Fritz. The exhibition reflects the diversity and breadth of the de Saisset's collection, as well as the generosity of its members and donors.
