GUM WALL

The infamous Gum Wall

 

Pike Place Market 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.


 

GIANT SQUID

 

 

 Pike Place Market Giant Squid Statue

Suspended from the ceiling of the south atrium, this squid certainly catches your attention.


 

SASQUATCH

 

Pike Place Market Sasquatch Statue

 

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.
