Can-can on down to the World Financial Center complex this weekend to see Arts Brookfield's 20th Annual Canstruction NYC competition. The competition, which was postponed due to Superstorm Sandy, features 25 of the city's top architecture, engineering and design firms, which will tonight stack and color-coordinate cans of food into sculptures that will be on view to the public from Friday to Feb. 11. When the sculptures are dismantled, the food cans will be donated to City Harvest. Though the exhibit is FREE, bring a can of food to donate.
