Meet the artist creating Nebraska-inspired mural at Lincoln cafe

Three years into her national murals project Kayla Newnam is well on her way to her goal of painting a mural in every state.

She arrived earlier this week in Lincoln and began work on her 18th state mural at the Hub Cafe as part of her project, “Out There Murals.”

Newnam, based out of Phoenix, Arizona, started the project during the pandemic and has been crisscrossing the U.S.

“It has been three years, two trucks, two trailers and three dogs, and now I’m on mural 18,” Newnam said.

Lincolnites are invited to come and meet Newnam on Wednesday at the Hub Cafe, 250 N. 21st St., as she works on her Nebraska mural between 5-9 p.m.
