Quirky. Fun. Close to Broadmoor Hotel.

The artwork is astonishing: the scale is quite large and the metal work is pure art by its own merit. If you're heading west on 24 or near the Broadmoor, the sculptures are worth... read more

I am not sure this still exists. There may be one or two sculptures left. If you are in the area drive by but don't make a special trip

This is an off the path local treasure in Colorado Springs. Some individuals have been inspired to express their art such as Simon Rodia in the Watts towers and Jim Bishop in the "Castle" in southern Colorado. Kempf focused on large outdoor sculptures. One of these is in downtown, but I think the rest are on the lawn of a... More

This man has built these giant stainless steel sculptures all around his house in an older section of the Broadmoor area. Neighbors have tried to have them removed... not what you usually see in a neighborhood, but this is one of those things that has been there so long and is loved by so many people that it has become...

These sculptures are in the yard of a private residence. You aren't allowed into the yard, but the sculptures can be viewed from the street. They are stunning. If you happen to be in the Broadmoor area, this is worth a short side trip.

Driving through the neighborhood where this is located I began to think we were lost, then there they were! They are in the yard of a private residence and the street is narrow. We only saw one place to pull off the road. Well worth the drive out to see them! I don't know the artist is but the sculptures... More

These sculptures were a cool little surprise. Many had moving parts to them. Kids enjoyed getting out of the car and examining them closer up. Good for a time filler after pikes peak as it doesn't cost anything either.

These have always been my very favorite attraction to visit in the Springs. There's also a sculpture downtown. You have to definitely check these out and marvel at his skill!

Interesting, moving, metal art work in a yard of a house in Cheyenne Canyon. They are huge and spectacular to look at.

Never knew this was here. Just so amazing to see all of these structures. Like Willy Wonka craziness.
