Each week we tell viewers what they can get for free. This week’s free list: 1) CANstruction Exhibition

The 26 gravity-defying sculptures for the 21st annual Canstruction exhibition and food drive will be revealed on October 31st at Brookfield Place (formerly World Financial Center).

Last year’s Canstruction saw nearly 100,000 full cans of food turned into larger-than-life pop art masterpieces by New York City’s top architecture, engineering and design firms. The sculptures included a Jeff Koons-inspired balloon dog, a classic Greek coffee cup, and the Staten Island “Eye” Ferris wheel.

This year’s sculptures will remain on display from October 31st until November 13th. Visitors are encouraged to bring high-quality, non-perishable cans, which will be donated, along with the cans used in the exhibition, to City Harvest.
