Gum Wall is a monument and landmark in Seattle, USA. The monument is a wall of an alleyway under the Pike Market that is covered in chewing gum. In 1993 patrons of the local theatre placed their gum on the wall and after two separate scrape downs of the walls it became a tourist attraction as people continued to stick gum to the wall, the gum covers all of the wall, the wall has a length of 50ft and a height of 15 ft. In 2015 the wall was cleaned and reopened with new pieces of gum filling the wall ever since.
