Rubber Wall rubber wall

Rubber Wall rubber wall

Most of us remember the school’s time of gluing gum under the table, and in the United States in Seattle, a step further was taken. The wall of the Pike Place Market Theater was decorated with colored, wrought-in rubber. The tradition of wall covering began in 1993 with Unexpected Productions. The theatre owner cleaned the wall twice, but unsuccessfully. He ceased his activities in 1999, when Gum Wall received the tourist certificate of the city of Seattle.
Initially, a coin was glued with rubber, now it is used to create special signs and symbols. At 3 m high and 15 m long, the wall in some places is covered with a dozen or so centimeters layer. In 2009 this place was awarded and named one of the 5 biggest tourist attractions after Blarney Stone.
