The plan is for these 1,000 wood squares to become part of a giant community mural project called "Imagination Squared." Artists of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to create squares using any type of arts and crafts supplies, photographs, found objects etc. "You are limited only by your imagination and a few simple guidelines on the application," notes Vegas.
“The mission of this project is to showcase the importance of arts and artistic expression in all our lives and provide a stage for a single community’s creative momentum,” she adds.
Participants need only to pick up their squares and hear a brief presentation about guidelines.
Here's a list of the times and locations where this can be done: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 10 at South Regional Broward College Library, 7300 Pines Blvd., Pembroke Pines (954-201-8825); 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 13 and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..

Young Library, 955 N.W. 129 Ave., Pembroke Pines (954-437-2635); and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 14 at Southwest Regional Library, 16835 Sheridan St., Pembroke Pines.
All squares will be donated to the project, and suggested (but not mandatory) donation is $1 for wood. Finished squares "appropriate for public venue and children," should be delivered between 8:30 and 5 p.m. Aug. 1 at Studio 18, 1101 Poinciana Drive, Pembroke Pines.
