17th Annual Canstruction® Competition and Exhibition


Sept. 25 - Oct. 18, 2015

during State Fair of Texas


Fair Park, Science Building

1300 Robert B Cullum Blvd., Dallas, TX 75210

Admission is free with a State Fair ticket

The annual Canstruction® Competition and Exhibition features imaginative sculptures designed by architects, designers and engineers.

The canned and boxed foods used to build these intriguing works of art are later donated to Tarrant Area Food Bank.

The event is sponsored by the Fort Worth chapters of the Society for Design Administration (SDA) and The American Institute of Architects as part of a national public service project of SDA and its Canstruction® Foundation.

Winners of the local competition enter photographic images of their can-structions into the national judging for Best Meal, Best Use of Labels, Structural Ingenuity, Jurors’ Favorite and Honorable Mention. 


Each year, the Canstruction® Committee seeks sponsors for their Gala where the competition awards are announced and for expenses related to the competition and exhibition. In addition, the firms and schools that enter the competition seek sponsors for the purchase of the thousands of cans and other food items needed to build their sculptures.

For more information on sponsorship opportunities, contact Tom Perez with ARC, Inc. at 817-332-9704 or by email.
