The Ford Museum; it’s a living tribute to Henry Ford’s incredible vision to preserve the Industrial Revolution as it unfolded for future generations to see and appreciate.
And interestingly relations between Ford and Chevrolet haven’t been as adversarial through the years as one might think. In late 1954 GM donated a brand new 1955 Chevy Bel Air to the Ford museum, and that same ’55 Chevy Bel Air has been on exhibit there ever since.
And that spirit goes on today in the 21st Century. Patricia Mooradian, President and CEO of The Henry Ford announced General Motors has contributed $5 million to The Henry Ford Museum.
“We are honored to welcome General Motors as a Partner in Innovation,” said Mooradian. “This gift of $5 million is a game changer and allows us to deepen our community impact with innovative experiences and new exhibitions and programs in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation.”
In recognition of GM’s historic gift, The Henry Ford announced that the flexible gallery space in Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation will now be known as The Gallery by General Motors.
“General Motors is working to drive sustainable change by supporting organizations that help build brighter futures for students and promote workforce development,” said Mark Reuss, Executive Vice President of Global Product Development, Purchasing and Supply Chain of General Motors. “We can move toward a lot of those goals by supporting The Henry Ford.”
