Jacob and Crystal Thiessen of the Hub Cafe (www.hubcafelincoln.com) invited Phoenix-based muralist, Kayla Newnam, to complete an interior mural in the café as a part of her national public art project, Out There Murals, that will see her produce a public mural in each of the 50 states. The Hub Cafe is the official Nebraska stop representing the 18th state of this project, which is expected to be completed in about three years. In order to demonstrate the process and power of public artmaking, an open house and live painting Q&A with Newnam was held in January as she added details to her Nebraska-inspired mural.

Since its inception as a farmer-owned restaurant in 2016, the Hub Cafe has been dedicated to creating freshly prepared and locally sourced breakfasts, brunches and lunches in Lincoln. The cafe’s location on the confluence of Lincoln’s vast bike trail network that overlooks the beautiful Antelope Valley has contributed to its name, serving as a hub for friends, food, community and bicycling. The original commitment to sourcing ingredients from as many local growers and small farms as possible in the Lincoln area continues to drive their desire for cultivating a united community spirit through unique farm-to-fork creations.

Executive Chef and Owner, Jacob, and his wife, Crystal, invite you to enjoy comfort food inspired by both their upbringings in the Midwest and their global travels at the Hub Cafe. Learn more at www.hubcafelincoln.com.
