Right near the base of Cheyenne Canon Park access. It only takes 10 minutes to view the few sculptures that are visible in the yard, but you will be awed when you see the giant scultures moving in the breeze as if they are weightless. Highly recommend this brief side trip after a visit to Helen Hunt Falls or Cheyenne... More

The art is spread out all over town. Most of it is concentrated at the base of Cheyenne Canyon. If you are going to the Zoo or to Seven Falls it is worth the detour.

We found this by accident. It's just a few blocks away from the entrance to Seven Falls. I thought it was just a guys yard and had no idea it was an actual attraction. The bird in the picture below can be seen from the road. We stopped and watched it gently spin in the wind and took a few... More

Plug in your GPS, otherwise you'll likely not find these. The only opportunity is a drive- or walk-by. Best if you are going to Cheyenne Canyon or the Zoo so you only go a little out of your way. Impressions: "How did he imagine these?" Then "How did he build them?"

This freaking-amazing display of amazing yard sculpture can't be missed! Spacey Calder-like mobiles from outer space! Loved it!

This is a really cool place to check out , its on the way to the zoo , and has been here since I was a small boy, many moons ago. It is a little out of the way , but definitely if you are in the area it is worth the time to visit.

Not worth the effort. Tucked into a neighborhood. You cannot get out of your car and enjoy the artwork. But if you are driving by it is awesome to see such large art forms smashed into a front yard.

It has actually been a few years since we have been here, a friend that lives in Colorado Springs took us here. We thought it was amazing. He also showed us that there are more of this artists sculptures around the city. It is a great place to view the sculptures with no cost. This place is literally in the... More

Close to the entrance of Cheyenne Mountain Park, these sculptures rise from nowhere, shifting in the wind and graceful as giant birds. No charge. Just stand and gape.

Great sculptures to go see, you cannot see them other than behind a gated fence but they are worth the visit to see them if you are on your way up to Helen Hunt Falls... Do a Google on them and read about some of the history of their struggle to remain at this spot..
