    Working Together,

    Building Success

    FIRST join us at Art & Soul where Jim Slattery will share with you the trials and tribulations of opening a new business. Jim will shed some light on the basics of starting a small business and how they successfully managed the challenges faced in establishing Art & Soul.

    THEN walk over to Zipline Brewery to hear Tom Wilmoth discuss the responsibility of being a community partner and how that is accomplished in a small business.

    about Art & Soul:  

    What Art & Soul is today began in 2008 as a custom framing store known as Frameworks, located at 235 South 70th Street in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Jim and Marilyn Slattery were presented the opportunity to purchase Frameworks and jumped at the chance.

    With the change in ownership came the desire for improvement and growth.  After exploring multiple ideas, the decision was made to expand services to include art and cooking classes, a retail boutique, a mini cafe and a lounge. In 2009, Art & Soul began as an idea that quickly turned into a dream come true for a family of cooks and artists.

    Learn more about Art & Soul and the Slattery Family who make it amazing!

    about Zipline: 

    Marcus Powers, Tom Wilmoth, and James Gallentine founded Zipline Brewing Co. in 2012. With a strong belief in the premise that local beer brings people together, the trio set forth with a goal to connect with beer lovers and their communities. Their shared vision is that building a sustainable business means investing in the personal service that yields long-term relationships and turns customers into friends.

    The name “Zipline” was born from the founders’ innate sense of adventure and their desire to connect with the thrill-seeking spirit in all craft beer fans. Whether it’s pushing the boundaries on recipe development, sipping a style you never thought you’d like, or zipping through the rainforest canopy, Zipline beer pairs with adventure.

    About Lincoln Children’s Zoo

    Since 1965 the Zoo has become a place where children could get up-close to animals and surround themselves in scenic gardens.

    The Lincoln Children’s Zoo is home to over 350 animals, more than 40 of which are endangered. Over 225,000 people attend the Zoo each year, making it the third most attended arts and science attraction in Nebraska.

    The Zoo offers many amazing events for children and adults throughout the year including Breakfast with the Penguins, Brews at the Zoo and their hands on summer Zoo Camps just to name a few.

    And soon there will be more to love about the Lincoln Children’s Zoo. With the recent announcement in March the Zoo will expand their vision to include four new amazing areas – a world-class giraffe feeding experience, an up-close tiger encounter, an indoor adventure where children will climb with monkeys and a plaza with a playful stream.
