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.
May’s cover image was taken by Emily Landmann, who lives with her husband, Tom, and son, Henry, in Clyde. Emily’s interest in birds and photography has bloomed since she moved to the River Valley area about 10 years ago. Her photo of an American White Pelican — a common visitor to Sauk Prairie and occasionally Spring Green’s Bakken’s Pond — is part of May’s “Meet the Maker” exhibit at the Spring Green Community Library that coincides with the annual Wings Over River Valley Bird Festival (see p. 5 of the May issue). For more local area bird photos and discussion, join the Facebook group “River Valley Birders.” Thanks to Emily for contributing to our cover!
