Have you heard of Canstruction before?
Canstruction® is a unique charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the creations go on display to the public as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the event, all food is donated to local hunger relief organizations.
Recognized for our commitment to innovation, hunger relief and collaboration, our work has helped raise over 21 million pounds of food since 1992. Canstruction events are held annually in over 150 cities around the world including North America, Australia, South America, Europe and Asia.
I LOVE that this combines art with a cause.
There was so much creativity and math that went into each sculpture!
In Cincinnati, you can see displays at 6 different locations. (Weston Art Gallery/Aronoff Center, the Downtown Public Library, The Contemporary Arts Center, The Scripps Center, Center at 600 Vine, and the Hyatt Regency Hotel.) You can easily walk to all of the locations.
This event is FREE and visitors can make a donation to the Freestore Foodbank using the QR code posted at any of the sites.
You’ve still got time to check out the creativity on display in Cincinnati.
