Vossler created a new body of work based loosely on the narrative of Dante's Inferno, and had several studio visits with artists and curators. The body of work that Vossler proposed to work on during the grant year is now nearly completed, as anticipated in the grant proposal. There is a wide range of tangible outcomes: small and medium scale drawings, one monumental drawing, collage work, digital work, and sculpture. Scheduled studio visits were completed, and many impromptu visits occurred, all of which contributed to the artist's learning, and one of which opened up a future opportunity for exhibition. 2: Vossler gave an artist talk at Minnesota State University-Mankato, and coordinated a collaborative drawing exhibition of twenty-eight artists at Soo Visual Art Center in Minneapolis. The numbers of artists and public audience members impacted by this project are significantly higher than anticipated. In addition to the traditional artist talk at Minnesota State University-Mankato, Vossler created, with Ekphrastic, an opportunity for ongoing dialogue between artists, writers, and the public which resulted in the creation of new work by twenty-five Minnesota artists and three Minnesota poets, and an audience of 1,400 people.
