Canstruction Southwest Virginia
Taubman Museum of Art March 1-17, 2019
It’s art, it’s a meal for the hungry, and it’s returning to Roanoke!
A can do event raising hunger awareness and collecting food
through a colossal canned food sculpture competition!
Canstruction Southwest Virginia is on a mission to raise awareness of hunger‐related issues and collect food for those who struggle each day to find enough to eat—one can at a time. Canstruction features massive sculptures created entirely from cans of food, built by local teams and displayed at Roanoke’s Taubman Museum of Art from Friday, March 1 through Sunday, March 17. When the exhibit closes, cansculptures are dismantled and all cans go directly to Feeding America Southwest Virginia’s food bank, to be distributed to people in need throughout our region.
To volunteer as a gallery attendant, email Lanell Otey or call 540.342.3011, ext. 7016.
