Portland Art & Heritage Fair

Artist and naturalist John James Audubon lived in Louisville for over a decade, eventually moving his general store business to Henderson, Kentucky, in 1810. During his time here, he continued drawing the birds he’s best known for, compiling them in his monumental 1827 book “The Birds of America.” To celebrate the former resident, the Portland Museum is dedicating the Portland Art & Heritage Fair to him with the juried art exhibition “Birds of a Feather.” The outdoor and socially distanced fair will also include art workshops for children, live chainsaw carving and live music.
