Faces of Colorado Art billboard: Can you name all these artists?

Have you seen this eye-catching billboard on Champa Street just south of 14th?

It's been dubbed the Faces of Colorado Art billboard, a collaborative effort curated by the Denver Theatre District's Art Salon. But who are the artists behind the billboard?

To find out, see our slide show -- Faces of Colorado Art Billboard -- which breaks it down panel by panel. But don't look at it yet: First give us your guesses as to who the artists behind this billboard are!

In the comments section, let us know who you think created each of the panels. Just go from left to right (Example: The first illustration, of Laurie Lynnxe Murphy, is by Jay Vollmar. So put "1. Jay Vollmar.") Again, if it's too hard, you can always consult our answer key. Since we're basically giving you the answers, however, we're also awarding bonus points if you can identify the person depicted in the portrait as well as the artist -- and those bonus points could make all the difference.

We'll give a pair of movie passes to any Landmark Theatre to one winner. (Make sure your provide a valid e-mail address so we can contact you if you're the winner.)

Tonight is the big night for the billboard and the artists behind it, as the Art Salon event gets going. The party is at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, Chambers Grant Salon (enter at DCPA entrance or on 13th and Champa). The event runs from 5:30 to 8 p.m. and is free if you RSVP. Free appetizers, a cash bar and jazz music played by Ayo Awosika are promised. Presentations begin at 6:30 p.m., with a program by artist Sharon Jones, as well as a Denver Theatre District year in review.
