Canstruction® Santa Fe 2019 – 5th Anniversary

One Can Make Difference

GIANT Sculptures of Canned Food

Part competition, part food drive, and a whole lot of fun! In an event supporting The Food Depot, New Mexico’s design community and local businesses build themed structures totally out of canned goods. The event is championed by AIA New Mexico and hosted by Santa Fe Place. All proceeds from Canstruction® Santa Fe benefit The Food Depot.

Special thanks to Market Street and Albertsons Market for their support of this year’s event.
