Canstruction 19th Annual Competition
What happens when you take thousands of cans and stack them together? If you are a designer or artist at Canstruction – something spectacular. Meanwhile, for the past 19 years Canstruction, a pop-up exhibit held at the World Financial Center, has been working with innovative designers. They stack up and transform over 100,000 cans into art while also running a canned food drive for City Harvest. It’s exciting to see art made from everyday materials. Also, deeply moving to think the “bricks” of those sculptures will be recycled to feed hungry families. Cans, charity and art – sounds like an incredible way to make the most use of cans that will eventually help to feed the hungry in NYC.
