Cincinnati Canstruction

 The 19th annual Cincinnati Canstruction competition is on display now through next Sunday, March 27th. Canstruction is an international community service project of the design and construction industry to benefit community food banks. Architects, engineers, designers and contractors compete to design and build fantastic giant-sized structures made entirely out of canned foods. After the structures are built and the winners declared, the creations go on view to the general public as a giant art exhibit.  At the close of the competition, all of the food used in the structures is donated to the local food bank for distribution to community emergency feeding programs.

You can check out the canned good sculptures at the following downtown locations:

  • Weston Art Gallery/Aronoff Center – 650 Walnut Street
  • Downtown Public Library – 8th & Vine Street
  • Center at 600 Vine  – 600 Vine Street
  • Macy’s Fountain Place – 505 Vine Stret
  • Hyatt Regency – 151 West Fifth Street
  • Hampton Inn & Suites – 617 Vine Street
  • Scripps Center – 312 Walnut Street

There is no charge for admission, but the public is encouraged to bring canned goods or make a donation to the Freestore Foodbank. You CAN make a difference!
