CANstruction 2012, via Public Art in Chicago

OK, so we haven't made it to this year's CANStruction exhibition at the Merchandise Mart, benefiting the Greater Chicago Food Depository, where volunteers from various Chicago design firms compete to build sculptures out of cans of food.

We've already shown you Bob Johnson's photo of Alfred Benesch & Company's award winning Mr. Peanut construction, and now here it is again along with Hirsch Associates / C.E. Anderson & Associates / Linn-Mathes' Chicago Harbor Lighthouse - A beaCAN of hope, from a photo catalog of this year's entries on Jyoti Srivastava's indispensable Public Art in Chicago website.  Check it out here.

The show is up through May 30th, and it's free - bring along your own can goods to contribute.  You can check out this year's list of winners here, and see even more photographs on CANstruction Chicago's Facebook page.
