Thanks so much for you kind comment on our blog post about the FFA jackets, Kelli. One jacket at a time will be on display in American Enterprise when it opens in summer for 2015. Textiles are sensitive and we have to preserve our collection objects forever, so they'll be on view on a rotating basis so each has minimal light exposure.

As a former FFA member, I truly appreciate the Smithsonian recognizing the importance of historical and modern agricultural practices, and specifically the importance of career and leadership education provided by the National FFA Organization. Do you know when the jackets will be on display to the public?
