The Real Thing
This piece was selected to be the "Featured Coke Item" for an exhibition at the Coca-Cola Corporate Headquarters in Atlanta. The exhibition was on display for the month of January, 2012. On February 4th the exhibition was moved to the Woodruff Arts Center where the pieces were auctioned to raise funds for the John C. Campbell Folk School, a non-profit organization.
On February 8th the piece continued it's journey, traveling to New York City to grace the neck of Coke executive Trudy Strawn at the annual Red Dress Collection Fashion Show.
