CANstruction SF Public Exhibition

What is Canstruction? Well, it’s similar to a sand castle contest, but our sculptures are made of canned food. Teams of architects, engineers and contractors design huge structures. Then these giant, fantastic sculptures can be viewed by the public for several days afterward. When the exhibition is over, the structures get dismantled. All of the canned food and money raised go to feed the hungry in San Francisco and Marin.

Canstruction, Inc. is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that holds annual design and build competitions to construct fantastic, giant sized, structures made entirely out of canned food. In each city after the structures are built and the winners declared the creations go on view to the general public as giant art exhibits. At the close of the competitions all of the food used in the structures is donated to the local food banks for distribution to community emergency feeding programs. >MORE
