Over Spilt Milk at the City Reliquary Museum [food art]
Currently on display at the City Reliquary in Brooklyn, NY, is the show Over Spilt Milk: The Fight for Fair Price & Fair Profit in Depression Era New York.
The exhibition, by the NY Food Museum, tells the story of New York’s Consumer-Farmer Milk Cooperative through pamphlets, broadsides, and vintage milk cartons from the 1930s, even with miniature dioramas.
The Co-op played "a pivotal role opening the market controlled by milk distribution giants. With their own processing plants and distribution stations, the Consumer-Farmer Co-op sold milk to consumers at the lowest possible price, and paid farmers the highest possible return, for nearly fifty years."
