In doing the math of "1500 baseplates", in this case, it probably is all plates Ace... kinda like how we did it at C4. At C5 and a lot of other recent events we've been creating our "mystery murals" out of brick for a couple of reasons.
1. The color palette is greater in brick v. plate creating more options.
2. Bricks are easier to handle for our target demographic, the ones that are actually putting together the mural for us. (child labor laws be damned)
3. It makes correcting any mistakes the kids make simpler to correct (you try pulling off and replacing 1000's of 1x1 plates per day)
I'm guessing that this event will be a demonstration event vs. a participatory one that the public can actually work on. i'm not sure who's spearheading this one and I'm also not sure it'll be a record setter.
