CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- A large scale art exhibit featuring sculptures constructed out of canned goods and other non-perishable foods will soon be on display downtown.
Beginning Tuesday, March 4th and running until Saturday, March 23rd, "Canstruction" will be at multiple locations in Cincinnati. Teams representing Cincinnati's best architecture, construction, and engineering firms will build large sculptures that will use more than 50,000 canned goods.

All the food used in the sculptures as well as public donations will go to the Freestore Foodbank at the end of the exhibit. The giant sculptures will be built on March 4th; awards will be given March 7th.
