Canstruction-Lite Event

Artspire’s Canstruction® competition was postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. Our mission for Canstruction® was two-fold: to create joyful art while helping to stock our local food pantries. We are continuing this mission with our Canstruction®-Lite competition.

The Canstruction-Lite competition is open to individuals or small groups that can safely meet, including families, youth groups, class rooms, and businesses. Create your own food sculptures using canned and boxed foods, which are then donated to a local food pantry. The size, shape of the can, as well as the color of the can label all influence the design.

Get creative and have fun! Canstruction® projects develop skills in Art/Design, Science, Engineering, Mathematics, Brainstorming, Creativity, Construction, and Community Service.

Structures will be judged by a panel with awards for the following categories: Best MealStructural IngenuityBest Original DesignMost Cans, and Best Use of Labels.
