Round 2, Styling' and Profilin'

  ragan profiles (3)

HCA intern Ragan Kelley, who is studying informatics at IUPUI, has been getting to know our studio artists in an unusual way. She has made it her mission to photograph our artists and create computer-designed profile silhouettes of each of them.  Some were instantly recognizable to us, but others provided more of a challenge. How well do you know these local artists? Here are some hints:
