Five teams with five architects are ready to build sculptures with canned foods for the annual Billings Canstruction event to help the Billings Food Bank.

"The the theme for 2011 is Disney Pixar movies," said Jill Washburn, of RMC Campus Corps, who is organizing the event.

The results are giant "canned art" exhibits, Washburn said.

The teams competing to build the best sculpture using cans of food include RMC Students in Free Enterprise, with architect Jim Beal of CTA; RMC Campus Corps, with architect Sherril Burke, HGFA; Albertsons Grocery Store management, with architect Mike Patterson, TUYA Studios Inc.; Albertsons Grocery Store associates, with architect Craig Frohlich, Designlab; and HDR Engineering Inc., with JGA Architects.

The sculptures, which will be built April 9, will be on display April 10-15.

After the entries are judged and displayed, all the food goes to the Food Bank for distribution to needy families.

Four tons of canned goods were used in the event last year, said Professor Karen Beiser, SIFE's faculty adviser.
