The theme for Canstruction 2011 is Disney Pixar movies!  You'll see huge displays created completely from canned foods based on some of your favorite movies like "Finding Nemo," “Toy Story”, “Monsters”, “Cars”, “Up” and”Ratatouille,” among others.

Canstruction is organized by Rocky Mountain College's Campus Corps and benefits the Billings Food Bank. Teams of architects, sponsoring businesses, and organizations compete to design and build colossal structures made from full cans of food.

The teams competing to build the best sculpture using cans of food include RMC Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE), with architect Jim Beal of CTA; RMC Campus Corps, with architect Sherril Burke, HGFA; Albertsons Grocery Store (management), with architect Mike Patterson, TUYA Studios, Inc.; Albertsons Grocery Store (associates), with architect Craig Frohlich, Designlab; and HDR Engineering, Inc., with JGA Architects.

The sculptures will be built at the Billings Food Bank on April 9th and will be on display for public viewing and judging April 10th-15th.  After that, all of the food goes to the Food Bank to help those in need.

You can be a part of this event by donating canned goods.  MasterLube locations will be accepting donations through the end of March.  Albertson's on Grand and Rehberg is another drop off location.
