Weekday Urban Sketcher Draw Can-struction

Can you draw a can? 

Can you draw many cans that are "can-structred" to look like buildings, bridges, animals and comic book characters?  Take the challenge this week as we visit a once a year phenomenon called CanStruction at Brookfield Place in lower Manhattan in the World Financial Center

Can-struction is a yearly event held in more than 25 cities around the country to raise money and draw awareness about the hunger relief efforts in this country.  Teams of design professionals compete based on a yearly theme.  The exhibits are judged on design, construction and number of cans used and are on view for only two weeks before being dismantled. The food is donated to soup kitchens in the city for use in preparing Thanksgiving meals.
