Artist Embassy

Most recently Alexander sponsored the Central PA Festival of the Arts Artist Embassy Booth. This is the information hub of the festival and is located on the corner of Beaver Avenue and Allen Street. Alexander has sponsored this booth for the past five years and works with children of the community each year to paint the canvases that decorate the booth. Below are some photos from the painting events.

Canstruction

Canstruction© is a national design/build competition to provide non-perishable food to food banks and soup kitchens.  Alexander has teamed with Murray Associates, Architects and K&W Engineers for the past two Harrisburg area Canstruction competitions (www.canstructioncentralpa.org).  Both years, ten teams competed against each other to design and build structures solely from canned goods.  The structures must be self supporting, with minimal load-bearing materials to support the cans.  At the end of the competition, the structures are dismantled and the cans are distributed to the community by Project S.H.A.R.E. (www.projectshare.net). The Alexander, Murray and K&W team has donated 18,500 cans over the past two years.  The first project was a six foot wide by six foot tall Hershey’s kiss made from 10,000 cans of tuna, titled “Kiss Hunger Goodbye”.  The second project was an eight foot tall by six foot wide apple with a slice cut out of the middle.  In 2009, the “Apple A Day Keeps Hunger At Bay” won Judges’ Honor by the panel of distinguished industry experts and advisors.
