Visitors can also purchase Spring Art Tour fine art posters and note cards featuring the work of participating artists: Karen Watson- Newlin, Peggy Flora Zalucha, Tamlyn Akins, Vicki France, and S.V. (Sue) Medaris at the studio of Tamlyn Akins. All proceeds from poster and card sales benefit the MHAAA Student Art Scholarship program and future Spring Art Tour events.
In the future, the Spring Art Tour area is being expanded to a 20 mile radius around Mount Horeb, which will include the Sauk Priaire/ Prairie du Sac, West Middleton, Barneveld/Ridgeway, and New Glarus areas as well.
