Weekday Sketchers Visit Construction 

NYC Canstruction 2012 - Canstruction Photos



Have you ever seen a bridge made out of ham? 
A building made out of tomato soup? 
An amusement part made out of vegetables? 



NO?  Then  join the Weekday Sketchers this Wednesday as we visit Brookfield Place to see this year's Canstruction Competition.

Each year engineering, architectural and design companies create sculptures made entirely out of canned food.  Completely self supporting each "canstruction" comes with a statement about how their entry represents an answer to world hunger.   The sculptures are available for viewing only a few days each year after which they are taken down so that the food can be donated to  soup kitchens for the Thanksgiving meals prepared for hundreds of people throughout the city.
