The Milk Truck
The Pittsburgh Biennial @ the Andy Warhol Museum
September 17, 2011 - January 10, 2012
The Milk Truck is a mobile breastfeeding unit designed in response to the unfriendly environment toward nursing mothers in the greater Pittsburgh, PA area. The truck is dispatched when a woman contacts the truck (via call, text or tweet) after being hassled for nursing in public. The truck contacts its followers while enroute to the woman’s location and once there, holds a nursing party in front of the offending establishment. In addition to its physical presence, The Milk Truck is a community that makes connections through social media (photos, posts, tweets, blogging, and a real-time map of the truck’s location). Thought the nursing mother created a spectacle? Meet The Milk Truck.
