01+-+Canstruction+at+Brookfield+Place

The 21st annual Canstruction exhibit is now open and free to view if you’re in the New York City area. The food can inspired exhibit features 26 different sculptures crafted by various artists to pay tribute to some of the more prominent pop culture items in our society. This year’s event features sculptures based on The Empire Strikes Back, Despicable Me, Sharknado, and other movie franchises, as well as purely creative pieces that offer messages of hope.

The event is now open and will run through November 13, 2013. Admission is free, so if you’re in the NYC area make sure to stop by Brookfield Place’s Winter Garden at 220 Vesey Street, and/or the lobby at 200 Vesey Street. The exhibit is open daily from 10am – 6pm, so if you’re interested hit up this map for more details on the exhibit locations.

Once the exhibit closes all 100,000 food cans used to create the art exhibit will be donated to City Harvest, so if you can make it to the show don’t forget to bring some food for your fellow man. If you can’t make it to New York then you can still view the exhibit from afar by heading on down past the break to check out a few of the more radical food can sculptures from the show.
