A Sticky Display of Local Seattle Art – Seattle’s Bubble Gum Alley. The brick wall outside the Market Theater is called locally ‘Bubble Gum Alley,’ in downtown Seattle. Since 1993, theater patrons stuck used chewing gum to the walls as they waited for entrance into the venue. It is said that the theater employees cleaned the gum off the walls several times, but patrons continued their practice and eventually it was left to grow. And grow it has, considered a tourist attraction since 1999, it was voted one of the top five ‘germiest tourist attractions,’ in 2009. I have only visited it in cool weather, and even in the absence of heat, the smell of all of that gum is quite odorous, I think in warm weather it would be quite over whelming. But looking at the many artistic creations is a fun few minutes while visiting the Pike Place Market.
