Starr Kempf’s metal sculptures are incredibly intricate and graceful steel wind kinetic sculptures. It means that the structures shift and move when the wind blows at them. He built most of them near to his house where a majority still lie till date. These sculptures are a testament of the artist’s ingenuity and unmatched skills. Starr Kempf was an American sculptor, architect, artist and soldier who built these structures to exhibit the movements of the wind and its effects on other objects. Though his art pieces were joyful, the artist had a dark side which ultimately led him to take his own life on April 7, 1995.

Starr Kempf's Kinetic Sculptures Reviews & Ratings
A very unique and unexpected artistic hidden gem at the base of Cheyenne Canyon. I would highly recommend taking a tour guide with you to give additional information and background on Starr Kempf's life, and not just his art. Additionally, I would recommend visiting on a windy day to fully see the movent and grandeur of each sculpture he has created. Let us all continue to visit and keep this piece of of Colorado Springs culture alive for generations to come.
This is a private property, so we didnt get very close of a look. However, the art is displayed for the public to view, and its gorgeous! I hope someday to go and speak to the homeowners - artists - and learn more about the art and its origins. A very neat experience though!
I work around the corner, and its always nice to stop bye and see the sculptures
Wonderful that they allowed some of these moving sculptures to stay. Neighbors are obnoxious, apparently. There used to be more, and they are fascinating, not just as works of art, but as engineering and science. One man's signature on our Earth. Functional art. Worth the visit, and looking up the history.
If you haven't stopped by here, you must do it at least once. One man created these gigantic kinetic sculptures, which can now be seen around town as well. There is a small pull-out across the street for a quick picture stop.
