Earlier this spring, a visual art competition was held at the Clinton Presidential Center. Participants used canned foods to build huge, intricate designs and structures. Local architecture firms competed with each other, and the Mayor’s Youth Councils of both Little Rock and North Little Rock also participated in the event. The creations were on view to the public as giant art exhibits until February 15th, at which point the canned foods were donated to the Arkansas Foodbank Network.
