Smack-pop-stick: Seattle’s giant wall o’ gum

The exterior wall of the Market Theater on Seattle’s waterfront is like the underside of a middle school cafeteria table, times 100. Since the early 1990s, people have affixed wads of chewed gum to the brick wall, located in  the downward-sloping Post Alley right beside the Pike Place Market. The result? A giant saliva-infused, molar-molded collage.

There’s no denying it’s disgusting. At the same time, though, it’s a cool example of an ongoing community art project. And, if you look closely, you can find some interesting arrangements of colors, shapes and textures.


I did my part.
