AmericaJR’s Gloria and Jerome Rzucidlo recently visited The Henry Ford Museum to check out their new exhibit: “American Style and Spirit: 130 Years of Fashions and Lives of an Entrepreneurial Family.” Walk through a living catalog of American style spanning 130 years. Rare in scope and detail, selected clothing from the collection brings the lives of the entrepreneurial Roddis family into sharp focus through fashion. Dozens of wearable time capsules — discovered carefully boxed up in the attic — tell an engaging epic of American style and spirit. Letters, photographs and heirloom objects bring to life the person behind each garment. As American as aspiration, the clothing reveals a sense of self-expression against a backdrop of history.
Admission to “American Style and Spirit: 130 Years of Fashions and Lives of an Entrepreneurial Family” is included with regular museum tickets. The Henry Ford is located at 20900 Oakwood Boulevard, Dearborn, MI 48124‑5029 Call Center: 313-982-6001 or 800-835-5237
