Didn't really care for this....its a bunch of big metal sculptures in someones yard. Personally my family and I didn't see what the fuss was about. Didn't appeal to us.

This lot is a gem. Not many people know to look for it and that is what it is special. I'd hate to see this place and objects become commercialized. They are meant for the wanderer, or lost, on the back mountain road.

Set in a private garden this is worth 10 minutes when you are in the general area, visiting the Starsmore Discovery Center and driving up to Helen Hunt Falls

Probably two years ago I went by here and was completely mesmerized by the sculptures. There were a couple that had fallen to the ground, but were still plenty standing to enjoy. Went by again this year and was saddened to see that yet another one had fallen to the ground. I am not sure what is taking place at... More

These works of art are just outstanding and deserve a far better location in an area that appreciates such Jules Verne styled pieces. Feeding pigs strawberrys , how the local neighbor's and city failed to recognize what a draw card they had to such a pretty area just amazed me, the local traffic no standing signs to make the experience...

A free drive-by of sculptures in the yard of a private home. Many features are wind-driven. Other individual pieces are elsewhere in the Springs.

After leaving Gold Camp Road or driving to/from 7 Falls, you can drive by the house where these magnificent works of art live. Starr Kempf is not there but the amazing kinetic sculptures he left behind are truly amazing! The property is private but you can get a good look from the road. There is also one of his sculptures...

After leaving Gold Camp Road or driving to/from 7 Falls, you can drive by the house that holds these magnificent works of art. Please be respectful and do not cross onto private property. I have seen many kinetic metal sculptures that try to replicate Kempf's work, but nothing else comes close.

Mr. Kempf's art is truly, literally awesome. The slightest breeze can set the gigantic wind sculptures into motion. We always take out-of-town guests to see these unique pieces and quite often find ourselves stopping for a few minutes of quiet meditation in their shadows. I am a terrible judge of heights but would guess they are around 20-30' tall, if... More

Breathtaking sculptures that move in the wind. Even though some are lying on the ground it its well worth a stop to enjoy. Be courteous to neighbors as it is residential area. You can't walk around the garden as it is a private residence. No problem, looking through and over the gate. The sculptures soar high in the air.
