Rochester, N.Y. – You may never look at a can of corn the same way again.

Canned food became works of art Tuesday night: A giant duck, a crayon box and a chess board.

Local architects used 30,000 cans of donated food to make their designs for the “Canstruction” event at The Strong National Museum of Play.

The competition is an annual fundraiser for Foodlink – and fun for local engineers.

“It’s a fun way to give back to the community," said Neil Ficurilli of LaBella Associates. "We get to express our creativity, all architects and engineers and students of engineering and architecture, creative people, and it's a way to get the creative juices flowing and support a great cause."

360,000 pounds of food has been donated to Foodlink through the Canstruction event.
