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.

amazing work and welding and machine work. great on low wind day to see everything move with the slightest breeze. City of Colorado Springs should do more to promote his work. There are a few of his downtown.

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

This was quite a large and intriguing site.....has great potential to those who love urban art and life style...artists and designers can envision accent pieces that would be lighted up.....it boggled my poor geometric senses....

When you visit this place, don't linger, it is NOT a public space, and the neighbors (and owners) frown on people who get out of cars to gawk. Instead, drive past, slow down for a spell, and take it in. It is unlike any sculpture garden you have seen before. It is a riveting story that needs no words. The... More

My first drive past the property really grabbed my attention! The mind of Starr Kempf seemed to have no bounds. The moving structures are fascinating, his understanding of scale and how wind would make them come alive. The down side is that Mr. Kempf took is own life a number of years ago at his home for reasons only known... More

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
