Nine Pin Cider’s New Mural Makes Thatcher Street Come to Life
Nine Pin Cider, New York’s first farm cidery, has completed a new outdoor mural on one of its loading dock doors on the Thatcher Street side of its Albany cidery.
Patrons have been able to watch the mural come to life thanks to local artist Phoebe Rotter. Rotter’s inspiration stemmed from Nine Pin’s mission to supporting New York agriculture by only crafting quality ciders from 100 percent of New York apples. The mural showcases a variety of apples beautifully inhabiting an outline of New York State. Surrounding it, are ripe cherries and fully blossomed flowers.
This is the latest collaboration (but, hopefully not the last) between Nine Pin and the Albany Center Gallery, as another mural, painted last summer by Billy T. Lyons in Downtown Albany is affixed to Nine Pin’s exterior wall.
“I’m so glad I got to add to the landscape of this city, even in a small way. It’s an honor to make public art,” said artist Phoebe Rotter. “I thank Tony and ACG for all of the amazing work they’ve done to help artists connect with our communities through art and huge gratitude to Nine Pin for supporting local artists and featuring creative work in their space.”
Phoebe Rotter’s mural now graces Nine Pin’s outdoor café area. Patrons are available to photograph themselves in front of the mural as well as in front of Nine Pin’s I Love Albany Mural on the adjacent loading dock door.
