Owner description: Starr Kempf Sculpture Garden - private property and not a business open to public
Reviewed 31 July 2014

This is a subjective view of someone who enjoys Art of all kind. This is something you just view from the sidewalk as it is not open like a normal museum. It is sad that Colorado Springs doesn't move these to a park or somewhere safe.

Many 'move' when the wind blows, soaring and swinging in time to the air, and are enchanting to see. Be sure to go by if you are in Springs and bring your camera! No one is maintaining these, no one is caring for them. They are beautiful, soaring spiritually lovely, even if made of metal.

Enjoy!

Didn't really care for this....its a bunch of big metal sculptures in someones yard. Personally my family and I didn't see what the fuss was about. Didn't appeal to us.

This lot is a gem. Not many people know to look for it and that is what it is special. I'd hate to see this place and objects become commercialized. They are meant for the wanderer, or lost, on the back mountain road.

Set in a private garden this is worth 10 minutes when you are in the general area, visiting the Starsmore Discovery Center and driving up to Helen Hunt Falls

Probably two years ago I went by here and was completely mesmerized by the sculptures. There were a couple that had fallen to the ground, but were still plenty standing to enjoy. Went by again this year and was saddened to see that yet another one had fallen to the ground. I am not sure what is taking place at the home these days, but things just seemed much more chaotic than the last time. I would recommend getting there as fast as you can to enjoy what is left, because I am sure someday in the not too distant future it will all be gone. Such amazing sculptures, it is unfortunate that they cannot be/are not being/have not been relocated to somewhere everyone can enjoy.
