Finding Beauty in Seattle’s Most Disgusting Landmark

By Rohan:

Seattle conjures images of the iconic Space Needle, the expansive Boeing factory, and the array of coffee roasters adorning the city’s streets. The Emerald City is also known for its use of public art, with a mandated rule that every new construction project must contribute something to enhance the town’s vibrant culture. Citizens of the city are encouraged to make their own art, as seen in the infamous Gum Wall, located a stone’s throw away from the Pike’s Place Market and the original Starbucks store. Although this is one piece of art that does not need a “Don’t Touch” sign, there is something beautiful about the scraps tourists have left behind for years.
