The infamous Gum Wall
Gum Icicles on the Gum Wall
No visit to PPM is complete without a glimpse at the infamous Gum Wall. An art work started in 1993 on the walls of the Market Theater and that is always in progress, the gum wall is certainly provocative. It is not as gross as it sounds and it actually photographs well. Certain artistic patrons have even formed gum icicles dripping from a window sill. It is on Post Alley maybe one hundred feet from the Information Booth. Ask the Booth attendant for directions.
Suspended from the ceiling of the south atrium, this squid certainly catches your attention.
On the bottom floor of the south atrium, come face to face with a six foot tall wood statue of the famous denizen of the northwest woods. This is a great place for photos.
