On Saturday November 4th, Praxis3 participated in the 19th Annual Canstruction Atlanta event benefiting the Atlanta Community Food Bank. The ACFB works with local food pantries, community kitchens, and night shelters to distribute meals to over 750,000 people in 29 counties across North Georgia. The Canstruction event is a charity design competition in which teams design and build giant structures out of canned foods. The structures will be part of a public art exhibition in early November and then the food is donated to the ACFB for use in their mission. Canstruction events are held annually in over 150 cities around the world and have helped raise over 25 million pounds of food.
 
The Praxis3 theme for the event is “Lending a Hand to Fight Hunger.” We designed and constructed a Hand Turkey (named Tom) using foods that are common to a typical thanksgiving meal. Comprising almost 2,300 cans of food and 900 pounds of bagged rice, Tom stands nearly 8’ tall and 8’ long. Canstruction Atlanta has published photos of all of the structures to their Facebook page. You can view the entries and vote for your favorite to win People’s Choice. Facebook Voting Link
 
Our structure, along with structures from 14 other teams, will be on display in Atlantic Station until Saturday November 18th. They are located in the lobbies of the 171, 201, and 271 17th Street office towers. Be sure to stop by and say hello to Tom.
