Canstruction comes to Boston!
Canstruction is a charity event and exhibition where teams of architects, designers, engineers, and contractors compete to create colossal sculptures made out of canned goods and other nonperishable food items. This exhibition is free and kid friendly!
The theme this year is “Around the World”. Online voting begins on Sunday, October 6th through Wednesday, October 9th at 1 PM and can be found here.
Founded in 1992, Canstruction’s mission is to highlight the issue of hunger across communities, collect food for distribution to thousands and to showcase the creativity of the design industry. For more than two decades, the design community in Boston has united through a creative medium that provides canned food for charities fighting hunger in Massachusetts. In the past 20 years, Canstruction Boston has collected more than 800,000 pounds of food, which has provided over 675,000 meals to those in the Greater Boston and surrounding areas. Members of the public will have the opportunity to vote online for their favorite works through the Canstruction Boston Facebook page. After the sculptures are dismantled, all the canned goods, supplied by the teams, will be donated to a local food bank.
On display from October 6 – October 25, 2019 in Waterfront Plaza.
