Drink a smoothie and raise money for CANstruction.
Tuesday, 21 April, Smoothie King (located at 845 West Main Street, Branford, CT) will generously donate 20% of profits to raise funds for CELC’s CANstruction Project for the Connecticut Food Bank. CELC hopes to purchase at least 5,000 cans to create our 6 x 6 x 10-foot entry can structure.
CANstruction teams students with professional architects to construct and showcase colossal structures made entirely out of full cans of food. After the structures are built, the can sculptures from schools throughout the state go on display to the public at the Durham Fairgrounds 5 May 2015 as a giant art exhibition. At the end of the event, all cans are donated to the Connecticut Food Bank.
CELC students work closely with HH Purdy Architects of Branford to design and ultimately build the can structure. The project incorporates math, spacial relations, planning as well as learning about local and global hunger issues in an experiential, real-world way.
