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.

These aluminum painted mobile sculptures are huge, dramatic, and beautiful. It's a pity they can't be distributed about the community, or placed in a more public location where they can be viewed without annoying the neighbors. As it is, at least two of them are down on the ground, and I don't think they are carefully maintained, now that the... More

Just an amazing feat of art coupled with engineering. I am always amazed as these huge structures catch the wind and dance away. To see works of art move in the wind will just keep you awe struck. They are in the front yard of Starr Kempf's former home in a residential area. Nice quick stop, then go enjoy the... More

A bunch of metal sculptures in the yard of a residential home. It's kind of whimsical and fun. It's not what I'd call a must see, but if you're in the area, it's worth driving by.

We got a little lost and happened on these sculptures. They ate amazing. They are on the Kempf's lawn in a residential neighborhood. You simply pullover and enjoy these amazing sculptures. It only takes a couple of minutes and they are well worth the stop.

Free, unusual, towering - not what you would expect from C. Springs. Also close to several other must sees to include Helen Hunt Falls and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

For anyone who enjoys large, moving, outdoor sculptures, Starr Kempf's work should not be missed. A tremendously gifted artist and engineer of his materials, Starr Kempf sadly ended his life prematurely in suicide. His works are among the best of their type that I have seen globally - paralleled only by some of the great works in The Kroller Mueller... More

The soaring, gleaming stainless steel wind sculptures created by the late artist Starr Kempf are one of those hidden gems folks love to discover. Tucked in Cheyenne Canon, at the corner of Pine Grove and Evans Avenue, the sculptures are a delight. They are in the yard of his private home. There are no facilities. It's a drive-by viewing opportunity... More
