'Can'-do spirit from local designers, architects and engineers to combat hunger

CANstruction sculptures up through March 23

CINCINNATI — They design and build the world’s most complex structures. On March 11, local architects, engineers and designers challenged themselves to conceive and complete large sculptures made entirely of canned food.

The 17th annual CANstruction raises money for — and awareness of — local hunger. Sculptures are up through March 23 at five downtown locales: the Aronoff Center for the Arts, downtown public library, Weston Art Gallery, the Scripps Center and Contemporary Arts Center.

When the sculptures come down, the thousands of cans used to build them will go to the Freestore Foodbank.

Local winners of the Canstruction competition will be honored an awards gala at 6:15 p.m. Friday, March 14, at the Aronoff Center. Details are online .

Visitors at each site can donate canned goods and non-perishable items. People can also donate online .
