The Wisconsin Book Festival’s new coordinator isn’t coughing up many details on this year’s event yet, at least according to this Isthmus piece.
There are just a couple more days left to check out an exhibit of dozens of artists at Pier 1218, a gallery tucked away in a West Side backyard. Spackle Madison has an overview and photos here.
A bunch of information on Madison’s summer outdoor entertainment options has emerged over the past week. I summed up the Terrace music lineup for Isthmus and Rob Thomas has a preview of a series of sci-fi movies on the Terrace. The Madison Museum of Contemporary Art has released the schedule for its annual Rooftop Cinema series, which we preview a bit on this week’s Arts Extract podcast.
Madison music blog Rock of the Arts has launched a new series aimed at digging up more Wisconsin bands, starting with this interview with Heavy Looks.
Finally, get outlandish with your arts reading this week and check out my friend Mark Riechers’ excellent Isthmus piece on yodeling.
