Check back in Fall 2017 for details on Capital Region CANstruction 2018!

CANstruction is an annual exhibit and design competition that connects talented architects, engineers, contractors, and students to imagine and create colossal structures built completely out of canned food items. The structures are on display on the fourth floor of the New York State Museum for two weeks, raising awareness of food insecurity in our region while highlighting the local talent of design firms. At the close of the exhibit, every can is donated to the Food Pantries for the Capital District to help feed families in the Capital Region.

If you have any questions please contact Sara Stein, President, at or 518 795 3849.

The CANstruction exhibit will take place at the NYS Museum
