Coca-Cola exhibit opens at Clinton Library


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- 100 years of Coca-Cola history will be on display at the Clinton Presidential Library beginning Saturday, November 6.

The exhibit starts at the library entrance with a yellow delivery truck from 1949. The temporary display also includes Andy Warhol pieces, never before seen Norman Rockwell paintings and the sketch that inspired the original coke bottle. That sketch is from 1915.

Organizers say it took two years to put the show together.

"It's a huge breakthrough for us. It means that some of the bottles you're going to see in the future. The PTE bottles are 100 percent made out of plant based material which is a sustainable way to move forward in the future," said Ted Ryan, a Coca-Cola historian.

You can see it at the Clinton Library until February 15.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Several staff members of Taziki's Mediterranean Café at their locations throughout Arkansas in North Little Rock, Bentonville, Fayetteville, Conway and Little Rock have decided to participate in ‘No-Shave November,’ a month-long journey during which participants forgo shaving in order to evoke conversation and raise cancer awareness.

The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing hair, which many cancer patients lose. Participants are encouraged to donate the money they would typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives and aid those fighting the battle.

Taziki’s has its own ‘team’ page on No-Shave November’s website, where donations can be made to support these efforts.
