Harmon and Harriet Kelley are San Antonio, Texas-based collectors of African American art. Over the last thirty years, the Kelleys have assembled one of the most comprehensive holdings of works by African American artists from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Loans from their collection are frequently exhibited in museums throughout the country. The Colby Museum is honored to have twelve works from the Kelley Collection on display in our galleries.

A collection guide listing the works and their locations is available at the Museum welcome desk. Each piece can be distinguished by this insignia on the label:
