TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Terre Haute is the birthplace of the Coca-Cola.

It has become an iconic symbol in the Wabash Valley.

News 10 stopped by the Root Family Public Art Exhibit on Thursday.

It featured six foot tall Coca-Cola bottle.

The exhibit is part of a later project.

It's called the Coca-Cola Bottle Branding Initiative.

Organizers told News 10 the project will have several different features.

"It will also include a mural on the side of the new History Center that's being built downtown, which will be a great addition. And then we're going to have a Coca-Cola bottle festival in September,"

All of the bottles were designed by local artists.

Organizers say they modeled this project after other cities with similar branding.
