Located along the Mississippi River in New Orleans, Louisiana rests a dedicated society of crafts makers. Throughout the week beer masters get to work daily brewing up some of the finest beer being served up along the Gulf-Coast. It’s when once a month that other emerging talented crafts makers of the arts assemble along side these beer gods under one roof.
When this happens a portal opens up at Urban South Brewery, and we become the gatekeepers. Welcome to Portculture.
We are a society of artists and musicians helping build artistic value by showcasing some of the most talented New Orleans based artists and creators who find themselves inevitably mixed into our network. The greatest gift to the world we could possibly give is creating opportunity for the hard working artist. Portculture began by supporting the dedicated artist and it’s always carried this mission. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Portculture is a collection of talent. When you make your adventure to New Orleans, we hope you end up scheduling a day to visit the portal we are opening. The Portculture x Urban South art show weekends are turning out to become a majority of the public’s favorite Saturday to discover new artists. We are fulfilling our purpose and it really means a lot to the team and family behind this.
The next artisans show & market is taking place April 21st, 2018. This will be our fourth edition art show. This date is right between French Quarter Fest & Jazz Fest. We look forward to seeing the friends and family who are able to make it out. We imagine a ton of art collectors will be in town, so we hope this becomes a go-to during that time.
Portculture is the arts renaissance of the Gulf-Coast.

Portculture is a growing network of brilliant creators. It’s almost daily we gain appreciation from our friends for the project’s mission and it’s really inspirational.

Thank you for helping make this a reality. We are bringing in a ton of updates for our site over time. If you’re following our page you can watch these develop. Until next time..
We lack words for how incredible the evening was for our grand opening art show and market. From a rooted artistic point of view, we consider what happened last night to be a forward step for arts culture and the society of philanthropy. We watched art being sold right off the walls. We witnessed collectors meet and greet new or familiar artists and take their work home with them. Urban South Brewery was brimming with creativity and culture. It was SUCH a honor to host with our family there.
We have so many people to thank. We already began calling our peers and thanking them for coming out, not even kidding we wanted to hug everyone in the room at the same time.
Thank you for helping us reach a new level. Last nigh was something FOR the artist, it’s our job together to move culture forward. Thank you for supporting the arts and helping keep us alive.
We hope you enjoy the photos captured from our journey.
