We changed our building materials for a good cause. After 2,976 cans, the Jaynes and Dekker/Perich/Sabatini team completed Los Miniones sculpture for Canstruction 2016. The team worked to balance the old and the new by creating a scene where Minions, made famous by Despicable Me, were watching Steamboat Willie.

Because of the collaborative design and building efforts, the team was awarded three of the five awards at the event, Jurors Choice, Best Use of Labels, and Structural Integrity.

After the event, all cans were donated to The Food Depot to provide over 8,000 meals for Northern New Mexico families.
