Join Microdesk at the 27th annual CANstruction New York! Plan now to come see more than 30 amazing structures in the 2019 Canstruction® New York Exhibit at Brookfield Place New York in lower Manhattan, from November 7 – 21, 2019. The exhibit will be open to the public from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, including Saturday and Sunday, except the 21st when the exhibit closes at 6:00 p.m. to dismantle the cansculptures.
CANstruction is a not for profit charity, founded by the SDA, which hosts competitions and events creating awe-inspiring, gigantic structures made entirely out of non-perishable food. Teams of volunteers, which include design industry professionals, participate in Canstruction® events in over 100 cities around the world each year. The can art sculptures are on exhibit to the public in each city where a competition is held. The public is invited to donate non-perishable food items during the exhibition. At the close of an exhibition, all food from the structures and public donations are donated to local food banks. Canstruction® New York has donated over 2 million pounds of food to local food banks since 1993, and over 1.2 million pounds to City Harvest since 2006. Since 1992, Canstruction® has raised nearly 82 million pounds of food for hunger relief organizations around the world with its signature, trademarked CanArt.®
