Canstruction New York City 2009 [can sculptures, food art]
Some people just can't stop playing with their food! Yesterday the 2009 New York City edition of Canstruction opened, featuring enormous structures built entirely out of cans of food by top architectural and engineering firms. Canstruction is an annual charity competition held in cities throughout North America, collecting millions of pounds of food for local food banks. While smaller than last year's show, there was some truly outstanding work, especially the reproduction of Coney Island that includes the Wonder Wheel and the Cyclone roller coaster. Here are some of our favorites:
The Winter Garden and Courtyard Gallery of the World Financial Center

The public is invited to bring a can of food to donate to City Harvest.
