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.
July’s cover photograph of a shifting sandbar in the Lower Wisconsin River was taken by Timm Zumm, president of Friends of the Lower Wisconsin Riverway, on Father’s Day just upriver from the Spring Green rail trestle. Timm says: “The river flow at the Prairie du Sac dam was around 10,000 cubic feet of water per second and dropping. It is an unusual treat to see a trickle of river water flush over the low area of a sandbar and start washing it away into a shallow drop-off on the downriver end.” Thanks to Timm for contributing to our cover! To enjoy more of Timm’s views of the river, find FLOW on Facebook. To share art or photography for a future cover of Voice, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
