Wish you could see them better and they were in better repair. It is a real shame to see them falling down and wasting away.

Near the entrance to North Cheyenne Canon Park stand several iconic steel sculptures that move with the wind. They are eclectic and pretty artistic. Being as we just moved here and live close-by we see them often and when asking one of the family members why one was sitting on the ground I found that the family has sued each... More

This one of a kind art is amazing, moving, and changing in the wind. It is outside in a wonderful area and you can enjoy it from your car!

I don't know why we were driving by when my daughter asked me what it was. I parked the car and got out. There were dark clouds to the east as a storm was coming in. The sun had just slipped behind the mountains, painting the sky with pinks and reds, and turning the storm clouds purple. There was a... More

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.
