Sculptures from Hunger Benefit to be Displayed Outside of Weston Art Gallery
CINCINNATI, OH.- The Taft Museum of Art will be home to two sculptures that will be part of Canstruction®, the global anti-hunger project that locally benefits the Freestore Foodbank.

Twelve teams will have five hours to canstruct their sculptures on Tuesday March 24. Two will be on view in the Taft’s Kaplan Lobby, with seven Canstruction® sculptures on display at the Weston Art Gallery and three at the Public Library of Greater Cincinnati & Hamilton County. Visitors are encouraged to bring canned food items to the Taft during this time as a donation to the Freestore Foodbank. A bin will be available at the Museum.

“We are thrilled to expand our display to three sites this year, which allows us to further showcase to the public the creativity of the architecture, engineering, and construction communities, and their position that hunger is unacceptable,” said Stephanie Kirschner, Co-Chair of Cincinnati Canstruction®.

Winners of the local Canstruction® competition will be announced at the gala awards ceremony on Friday, March 27. This ceremony, emceed by John Lomax, celebrates the food donations as well as the commitment of the design community to consistently create a compelling public exhibit.

At the close of the Canstruction® event, all of the food from the sculptures and bins will be donated to the FSFB for distribution to 400 agencies in more than 20 counties.

Canstruction® is an international charity competition where architects, engineers, contractors and students they mentor compete to design and build giant structures made entirely from full cans of food.

Since 1997, Canstruction® has raised more than 307,500 cans of food for the Freestore Foodbank. Since its inception, 10 million pounds of food have been donated to aid in the fight against hunger around the world Canstruction® is a not-for-profit foundation of the Society for Design Administration whose mission is to “Canstruct a World Without Hunger.” Canstruction® now has more than 100 cities hosting annual competitions.
