It was that time of year again here in NYC as the “Canstruction” project had assembled the wonderful works of art and displayed them around the lobbies of Brookfield Place down in Battery Park City. I was happy to return to focus some time on this presentation because its for a great cause and I have a lot of photos to show you from it. Before we begin let’s take a look at the premise of the charity itself.
“Canstruction® is a unique, trademarked charity which hosts competitions, exhibitions and events showcasing colossal structures made out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the cansculptures® 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 nearly 40 million pounds of food since 1992. Canstruction® events are hosted in over 150 cities around the world including North America, Australia, South America, Europe and Asia.”
As you can see by the signage above, the display of these “Canstructions” will be here until 11/16 and that is why I rushed to post this. I want all of my readers in the vicinity to see this cool idea – especially since its for a good cause. There was a map of the locations of the constructs and I felt that the best place to start was at the beginning. Sometimes I will have a few photos of a particular sculpt since there was more to look at or it needed a little more of a distance glance. Here we go.
