Local adults with special needs recently demonstrated their creative talents in Pembroke Pines.

More than 30 people from the nonprofit Circle of Friends & Stars painted unique versions of Halloween icons as part of Ghoulish Guardians, a pumpkin carving and painting contest at the Pembroke Pines Community Garden.

“We like to take them on field trips. This is a special event today to work on something completely silly,” said Dixie Lee Hedrington, Circle of Friends & Stars’ executive director.

The event was open to the public, and free pumpkins were available to those wanting to carve jack-o’-lanterns using provided implements.

“We are a city not only dedicated to arts and culture, but to making events accessible and affordable to the public,” said Jill Slaughter, Pembroke Pines’ curator of special projects, who organized the event.  Read More

Jacklyn Laflamme, artist in residence at the city’s Studio 18, was one of three competition judges.

“This is just one more opportunity as an artist to be out in the community and contributing,” Laflamme said. “As an artist, to be able to give back to the community is a win-win.”
