Why is there a giant mustache sculpture inside NorthPark?
It's a prickly predicament.
DALLAS Why a mustache? Why, it's Canstruction, of course.
Shoppers at NorthPark Center will notice some stackable delicacies built by Dallas-area architects throughout the mall for Canstruction, an annual event designed to tell public stories about hunger. Firms this year got creative, with one group wearing fake mustaches as they spent Saturday morning at the mall building a half-shaven mustache.
The North Texas Food Bank will receive an estimated 40,000 cans from Canstruction. The mustache sculpture, for instance, represents the "prickly predicament" of world hunger, saying it should be shaved down to stubble.
Another installation, called "Hunger Isn't Fair," depicts the Texas Star ferris wheel at the State Fair of Texas. Some of the Canstructions used as many as 6,000 cans.
The installation is on display until October 21, and then the cans will be donated to the food bank. Go see a fun exhibit for a good cause.
