We love to take out of town guests to visit the sculpture at Starr Kempf's home, especially those who are also artists. The setting near the nature center is beautiful any time of year. We were graced with gentle breezes; the bigger the breeze the more dramatic the sculptures become as they twist and turn. Our guest, an artist from... More

My husband saw these sculptures 15 years ago and when we came over this time he got our friend to take us to see if they were still there and they were. Unfortunately the day we were there there was no wind but the sculptures where still impressive to say the least.... If you are into metal sculptures and how... More

Living close to this location is nice, but their current location creates a problem they cause traffic problems for those of us who travel on Evans Street Someone needs to purchase and move these great sculptures to a good park or an area with lots of room to enjoy them best requires the ability to observe from all angles and...

It would be easy to miss Starr Kempf's amazing kinetic sculptures. They aren't in a park or exhibit, they're just in the yard of the house where he lived. You can't go onto the property; if you want to see them, you have to park along the road and look at them from there. But they are definitely worth a... More

Believe it or not the neighbors have tried to get the statues dismantled for their disruption of their non-existent view. These sculptures are quite amazing. I highly suggest taking a look. The man who made them died a tragic death but he created beautiful works of art all from hand in his basement.

From my first visit to see these amazing creations, I have been in love with these sculptures. It is sad that time has taken it's toll on some of the works of art, but still very much worth a visit. Whenever I visit the area, I make time to see these wonderful pieces. They are mesmerizing!!!

This is a subjective view of someone who enjoys Art of all kind. This is something you just view from the sidewalk as it is not open like a normal museum. It is sad that Colorado Springs doesn't move these to a park or somewhere safe. Many 'move' when the wind blows, soaring and swinging in time to the air,... More

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
