  • These are much larger than they appear in the photos. Worth checking out. We visited both locations for these sculptures.

  • I really enjoyed this stop on my trip! The art sculptures are amazing and on a large scale. I wish it was windy to actually see them in motion.

  • These pieces are amazing and the homes owner didn't seem to mind us stopping by to snap a few pics. I would have loved to see them all in motion, but it looked like one was out of commission, still a great stop in a very sweet neighborhood. Hard to believe an artist with so much whimsy and talent would take his own life. Glad his daughter has kept his legacy going.
  • Situated in a residential area at the base of the Cheyenne Mountains are Starr Kempf Kinetic Sculptures. He started making the windmills in 1977. There is no parking in front but there is a pull off across the street. Also there is a parking lot few feet down the road. As I understand, there were more sculptures but the neighbors didn't like the traffic, so a court order made the family take them down. There are still 5 of them still there. There are a couple in downtown Colorado Springs. I visited on a windy day and it was awesome.
