Taste the Rainbow… Fish

The structure depicts the cover art of the classic children’s book, The Rainbow Fish by Marcus Pfister. As the story teaches the power of sharing and selflessness, we hope our creation echoes this sentiment and the mission of CANstruction. Our 3D fish structure will consist of a colorful smattering of cans, tipping the “scales” at approximately 500lbs. It will also, of course, feature the rainbow fish’s signature silver scales, which, by the end of the story, he shares joyfully with his fellow sea creatures.
