A four-part exhibition at the High Museum of Art in Midtown will celebrate Atlanta’s own Coca-Cola.

“The Coca-Cola Bottle: An American Icon at 100” will run from Feb. 28 to Oct. 4. The exhibition features more than 100 objects, including more than 15 works of art by Andy Warhol and more than 40 photographs inspired by or featuring the bottle.

Visitors will have the opportunity to view original design illustrations, historical artifacts and a century of experimentation with the Coca-Cola bottle since its creation in 1915.

Organized by the High in collaboration with The Coca-Cola Company, the exhibition will be presented in two floors of the High’s Anne Cox Chambers wing. As visitors enter the exhibition gallery in the first-floor lobby, they may interact with more than 500 contemporary 3-D printed bottles suspended from the ceiling that reference the Coca-Cola bottle’s iconic design. The second floor displays will feature three main areas: a section taking visitors through the design history of the bottle, the pop art section with more than 15 works by Warhol, and a photography section including works from the High’s permanent collection.
