How do I wire up a bunch of LEDs in my ceiling?

Me and a couple of others share an approximately 1000 sq feet space in the basement of an old building as kind of a shared hangout / workshop area. When we moved in, the landlord installed adequate fluorescent tubes, but we'd like to have another option.
What I was thinking of was, since there's wood beams every 3 feet or so, hang white fabric between the beams, and put clusters of LEDs in the corners of the beams. Maybe like 8 LEDs per cluster... two each of white, blue, green, and red, and have sliders or an arduino, or something, to control the color composition from a central control panel / switch bank.
So, how do I make my diffuse LED lighting dream a reality?
