This gallery showcases Can Art entries that won a charitable contest by Canstruction. Different-sized cans and tins are used in conjunction with coloured-labels to create pieces of art for a worthy cause. When their yearly competitions reach their end, all of the food used in the Can-Art sculptures are donated to local food banks. These distribute the food to community emergency feeding programs. Don’t forget to check out the Hot Dog, Big Bird and the Killer Whale in the gallery.
