Beginning on Aug. 17, the design teams will have 10 hours to assemble their can structures at Ponce City Market.
In addition to canned food, the teams will be able to use wood, tape, rubber bands, wire and Velcro to create their structures.
“Each canned food art display will showcase a design concept as a standalone part of the exhibition’s entire series and draw inspiration from futuristic cars and airplanes; popular cartoon characters; items related to Atlanta’s burgeoning film industry; iconic area landmarks; and more,” according to the press release.
After the exhibit closes, the displays will be deconstructed and the canned goods will be donated to the food bank for distribution.
“The annual Canstruction Atlanta program and canned food exhibition help enrich the Atlanta-area community and bring together people from different design-oriented industries,” Co-Chair James Byers said in a statement. “Most of all, the program provides a sense of unity which lends to the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s goal of conquering area hunger.”
