Wanna see something neat involving cans of food? Check out the exhibit of can sculptures at the Water Garden in Santa Monica on display through Saturday, November 1, 8am-6pm.

Canstruction LA, which benefits the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, invited prominent L.A. architects, engineers and designers to create exhibits made entirely of cans of food.

Prizes include "Juror's Favorite," "Best Meal," "Best Use of Labels," and "Structural Ingenuity."

Admission is free but it's suggested that you bring a can of food to donate. At the event's completion, the cans are donated to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
