The Rochesteriat

In its 10th year now, Canstruction, presented by Buckingham Properties,  is a FREE exhibit of canned food structures (but really, there's more to it than that)!

"Canstruction® is a unique nonprofit organization that holds annual design-build competitions to build giant sculptures made from canned food" (via website).

This year's theme: Fantasy & Fairy Tales

The competition serves to raise public awareness about hunger and need in our community and the donated cans are all given to local food banks after the competition. In this instance, all food cans are donated to Foodlink.

To date, Canstruction Rochester has donated 308,178 pounds of food. While previous competitions were held in Legacy Tower's Wintergarden, this year you'll find the exhibition on view in the lobby of Tower280 at Midtown until June 2nd! Don't miss this fun event.
