An elegant surprise.

Close to the entrance of Cheyenne Mountain Park, these sculptures rise from nowhere, shifting in the wind and graceful as giant birds. No charge. Just stand and gape.

Great sculptures to go see, you cannot see them other than behind a gated fence but they are worth the visit to see them if you are on your way up to Helen Hunt Falls... Do a Google on them and read about some of the history of their struggle to remain at this spot..

For a city that has so much public art, I can't believe these beautiful pieces are not on public display. Was very glad to stop by his home and see the pieces that are still up... stunning. Close to Helen Hayes and The Broadmoor.

His work is extraordinary. A Colorado Springs gem. Whimsical, ever-changing, clever, sometimes amusing, always elegant.

During a visit my son took me to see this several years ago, Mr. Kempf was still alive then. I was amazed by the sculptures themselves but the movement made them fascinating. I took some visiting relatives to see them a couple years ago. I was disappointed that a couple of them were laying on the ground but the ones... More

It located in a residential area near the Broadmoor. We met this gentleman about 25 years ago and were invited into his studio. These amazing kinetic sculptures are still standing. If you are lucking enough to be there on a winding day they'll move around for you. But even if there is no wind they are great fun to see.

We drove by these sculptures and turned around and drove by again. They are very beautiful. It appeared that they were in a private residence, so we just admired them from the road.

This is definitely worth a stop even if it's out of your way! These amazing moving sculptures are located on the grounds of a residential property. The pieces still installed are absolutely breathtaking even in the rain with limited movement due to the weather. It's sad that several other creations are lying on the ground inoperable or disassembled. It would... More

Worth a 5 minute stop on the way to the zoo. These are a series of unique metal sculptures that move in the wind. We've been stopping by when enroute to the zoo for about 20 years now. They're always fascinating.

The sculptures are tall and move around in the wind. Creative, whimsical, individualistic and worth seeing
