The sculptures are in the yard of Starr Kempf's home. He passed away many years ago. While the gentleman was alive the neighbors didn't complain about all the art work, however, that changed when he passed away. Therefore, you will find some of the pieces laying on the ground. The area isn't really set up for getting out of your... More

May be I didn't see the tour and story signs, but this place is definitely worth checking out. The mobiles in the yard are incredible. I imagine they would be much more interesting with some texture/background. Otherwise, recommend incorporating this into a drive by after a sunrise hike/run in North Cheyenne Canyon.

Fun place to drive by and have a look especially as it's free! We just pulled up opposite and took some photos but didn't actually walk through.

I was at a near by museum on my way to North Cheyenne Park and this place happened to be between the two. It is pretty cool that a residential house has such odd and large pieces of art in their yard. If you are in the area, it's worth a drive by. If you aren't, just look at the... More

In a private neighborhood is a nice home with an overgrown yard and these absolutely amazingly huge, wind driven sculptures by now deceased Starr Kempf. The story behind the sculptures is fascinating and a shame. Due to legal problems, these fantastic sculptures are in the process of being dismantled so try to see them soon, but be very careful not... More

Although I did appreciate the artwork, it shouldn't be so high up on the list of things to do. The sculptures are magnificent to look at but it was dissapointing to find them enclosed in the front yard of a residence. I had the impression they would be scattered about in a park.

These sculptures are unique and somewhat characteristic of the Manitou Springs Cheyenne Canyon area. You get a interesting vibe: sort of a Tim Buryin, Edward Scissor Hands experience. In part because its in a residential neighborhood and because of the nature of the sculptures.

Star Kempf has passed on, but his works are mostly still around. I knew this gentleman for years, and most people didn't know his bronze work was actually some of his best work. The public doesn't have acces to that, but these sculptures are made on heavy duty truck parts. The designs are amazing as Starr had a wonderful creative... More

Located in neighborhood near Seven Falls . These are some beautiful sculptures that you can see driving by. We stopped and took some pictures . There were more but neighbors complained so some have been taken down and are laying on ground. Worth a stop to look at.
