Canstruction Atlanta kicks off 20th annual public art competition

The nonprofit Canstruction Atlanta, that benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank, has announced the launch of its 20th annual art exhibition program and philanthropic event in association with the American Institute of Architects and Atlanta Chapter of the Society for Design Administration.

The announcement kicks-off months of advanced planning and participation on the parts of Canstruction Atlanta committee members, a variety of sponsors, and numerous design teams, resulting in massive art structures made of canned food goods at three office towers adjacent to Atlantic Station, in Atlanta, Nov. 4-16, 2018. The exhibition will be free of charge and open to the general public.

The Canstruction Atlanta organization, which comprises architectural, engineering and construction industry members and a wide range of related community members, inspires and facilitates metro-area participants to create and build the food can art displays. The program raises awareness of Atlanta-area hunger insecurity and generates food and funds for the Food Bank, while shedding a spotlight on the local design industry.

The awards gala is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 15 on the Nelson Mullins office rooftop patio at 201 17th Street, NW, Atlanta. The public is invited to attend the gala.
