Marvel at giant sculptures made entirely out of food in the Canstruction! display at The Strong museum from Saturday, November 3 through Saturday, November 17.

Canstruction is an international charity competition that challenges architects, engineers, contractors, and students to design and build large-scale structures made from canned food. Presented by Buckingham Properties, Canstruction Rochester has donated more than 330,000 pounds of food to Foodlink since 2006.

Be a part of the fun by donating one canned food item during National Toy Hall of Fame Celebration Weekend on Saturday and Sunday, November 10 and 11, and receive a free carousel ride, train ride, or five arcade tokens.

Canstruction! is included with general museum admission fees. Programs underwritten by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong.
