Interior Design Students Complete CANstruction Project

Recently, the Interior Design Program participated in CANstruction, a unique charity event organized by local design and construction industry professionals. Teams designed sculptures made entirely of canned foods which were on display at the New York State Museum for two weeks in the beginning of April. This year’s them was heroes and the Interior Design Program designed a structure based on a Captain America comic book cover. Our team’s “Captain AmeriCAN” was composed of over 2,000 cans of food which were donated to local food pantries at the close of the event. Our students raised over $5,000 for this event and were awarded the Team Spirit trophy for their hard work on this project. You can learn more about CANstruction at
