I kept hearing myself emote huge wows at each piece, each one better than the one before it, or each wonderful in it's own way. The paper in the middle really curled my toes; the gum is beautiful in the weirdest of ways! The top piece simply beautiful art! I thank your eye for catching these and sharing.

I have always loved walls with layers of posters. The gum wall is just amazing. creepy and lovely both.

Great textures. Is the gum wall finished or are folks encouraged to keep adding to it? Hope you are having a great time. We are back to school tomorrow. :/ Best wishes, Tammy

Fabulous pictures!

Do you think that lots of cities have gum walls? San Luis Obispo has one of its own too. I wonder what the germ factor on a wall like that is? The beauty factor is sure high. Isn't it great to find textures in the most unusual places?

Gum wall!

A gum wall!

I suspect Amy may next encourage her kids to chew gum and stick it to a wall in their house. I betcha.

The gum is "ew", but fascinating. The peeled paper makes me swoon.
The Aboriginal art is wonderful (so easily recognizable- it's iconic in my mind)
Great photos! I'm so glad your sharing your trip with us!

Blah!! The gum wall is so gross! If it weren't gum it would be cool texture but.... I can't even look at it anymore.

Love the poster wall texture!
