Arts Brookfield presents the return of the annual gravity-defying Canstruction design competition and most unique food charity to Brookfield Place (230 Vesey St.) for its 25th anniversary. From Thursday, November 2 to Wednesday, November 15, 27 teams will compete for awards by building larger-than-life creations from unopened cans of food, which are then disassembled and donated to City Harvest. An incredibly popular artistic event, last year’s competition welcomed over 40,000 visitors, allowing City Harvest to collect 64,000 lbs. of food and distribute enough cans to feed more than 26,000 hungry families in New York City for one day. While admission to Canstruction is free, visitors are encouraged to contribute by bringing non-perishable cans of food for donation at the 2nd level of 230 Vesey Street.
