I always take visitors by these sculptures. I enjoy them myself. The off beat history of the family's management of these sculptures is a noted background to the visit.

Tucked back in a canyon, these sculptures are really strange and intriguing. Be nice to the neighbors, though, and move through quickly.

To bring sculpture to life through the glint of the Sun and the breath of wind is fascinating. These highly unusual mobile sculptures are "off the beaten track," but not far off. They are very close to the Starsmore Discovery Center at Cheyenne Canyon and are well worth a "side-step" for a peek.

I know the neighbors must hate us, but "us locals" always drive VFR (visiting friends and relatives) by this place. It's part of the standard loop: Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, up 26th street and Gold Camp Road, back down Cheyenne Canon and here...Starr Kempf was a local sculptor/teacher who killed himself many years ago but his stunning and unusual...

The sculptures are fantastic, but it is just a brief stop on the way to Seven Falls or the discovery center.

We love to take out of town guests to visit the sculpture at Starr Kempf's home, especially those who are also artists. The setting near the nature center is beautiful any time of year. We were graced with gentle breezes; the bigger the breeze the more dramatic the sculptures become as they twist and turn. Our guest, an artist from... More

My husband saw these sculptures 15 years ago and when we came over this time he got our friend to take us to see if they were still there and they were. Unfortunately the day we were there there was no wind but the sculptures where still impressive to say the least.... If you are into metal sculptures and how... More
