Can you name these artists?

We recently came across this almost twenty-year-old photograph from an exhibition of nine finalists for the Utah Arts Council Fellowship grant. Can you name the nine artists? We’ll give you a hint: one of them is this month’s Artist Profile and he mentions this exhibition in his video interview. The first person to correctly name...
