Welcome to Voice of the River Valley
Voice is an arts and culture magazine published and distributed in the Driftless Area of southwestern Wisconsin. Voice is focused on the individuals, events, organizations, businesses and communities of the Lower Wisconsin and Sugar-Pecatonica River Basins — including Arena, Avoca, Dodgeville, Lone Rock, Mineral Point, Mazomanie, Muscoda, Plain, Prairie du Sac, Richland Center, Sauk City and Spring Green. Each month up to 3,500 copies of Voice are distributed at more than 160 fine galleries, shops, cafes, restaurants and libraries in 21 cities, towns and villages across the region.
October’s cover art, “Old Man River” by Jen Salt of Spring Green, is part of her “Sixty West Art Project” documenting landmarks along the 100-mile Lower Wisconsin River Road. Jen says of her project: “Four years ago I learned that a section of my favorite highway, Wisconsin 60 West from Gotham to Muscoda, would most likely be re-constructed within the next five years to accommodate a faster traffic flow. My art experience documenting the value of the landmarks along 60 West was a positive way to direct my acceptance of the changes.” Thanks to Jen for contributing to our cover! To see more of Jen’s project, including her “Old Man River” painting of a shed in Orion just north of the Highway 80 bridge across the Wisconsin River to Muscoda, attend an exhibit at 1 p.m. Oct. 15 at the Green Technology Training & Enterprise Center off Highway 23 north of Plain.
