Not well known, not so easy to find. Does not take long to see but gorgeously original artwork at the creator's home. Some other pieces are found in downtown Colorado Springs.

These sculptures were very unique and cool. It was a windy day and the kinetic parts were moving, bringing the pieces to life. It was well worth the visit. There are also three more of his pieces in front of Colorado College on Nevada across...More

The thought and skill that went into these moving sculptures is amazing as is the back story on why some have been removed. The story is also tragic. Be sure to see the ones that have been moved to new locations.

I love the sculptures there. Beautiful artwork! I have taken every family or friend who come to visit by this place. I wish we had a better place to put them for more access.

Like many, I stumbled upon this totally cool sculpture garden while passing through the area for other reasons. Once caught out of the corner of your eye, you simply can't just drive on by. There's some very creative work here.

Still located in the family yard, these large kinetic sculptures are inspiring. Before you go, research the history of the sculptures and the backstory of the (partially successful) municipal efforts to remove the sculptures. You’re in a residential neighborhood and should be respectful of the...More

Great to see on a day with a slight breeze. Fun to watch them turn and spin. Great spot to stop. See you there.

These sculptures are located next to the Starsmore Nature Center. They sit in the sculptor's front yard for all to see, and they are breath-taking. Three have been moved to the Ent Center for the Arts on the CUCS campus.

Not at all. This is actually a residents home. And you can drive by and admire. There's also a spot to park across the Street.
