“CANstrution” is a great artistic charity organization that is held annually in over 150 cities around the world. On March 26 -30 2014 in Medowood Mall in Reno there was an exhibition and all the food will go to feed the hungry in our area and to the food bank of northern Nevada.
They host competitions from K through 12th grade, Universities, and Corporations like Disney and John Deer to create structures out of canned foods that are displayed as an art exhibition. There are designers and engineer that collaborate to do these “CANstructions” and they go to great creative extents to make the cans of food mach or relate to what there making. Like for instance, a giant seahorse out of cans of tuna. All structures are made almost entirely out of cans of food.
After all of the exhibitions are over, all of the can foods are donated to food banks thru out local hunger relief organizations. This origination have raised over 21 million pounds of food since 1992
I belief that this is a great article about a great organization that is hosted in a public space to bring awareness about hunger to the public through art, and how to be creative with things that you have in your kitchen, or at home that is inexpensive and that can use to help someone that is in more need than you or I.
