PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Canned foods are usually found in grocery stores and pantries, but now, tens of thousands of cans have been turned into art in downtown Portland.
Canstruction is on display through Sunday in the lower level of Pioneer Place, located at 700 Southwest 5th Avenue.
The exhibition features several structures, like a famous scene from The Loin King and Yoshi from Mario Kart.
In total, Canstruction is made up of about 35,000 cans.
Canstruction is not only an art show, but also raises awareness on hunger by being a food drive.
All the cans will be donated to the Oregon Food Bank. During its more than 20 years of structures, Canstruction has helped donate more than 1.1 million meals to help fight hunger in Oregon and southwest Washington.
