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.

Was on a hike and ran across this place. Didn’t realize what it was until I was on TA. Not sure why it’s listed as something to do though since it’s a personal residence and can only take pics beyond the gate. Very cool sculptures...More

Movement is completely dependent on the wind currents. The display is filled with fluid movements that will mesmerize the observer....More

These sculptures are working time piece art! It's hard not to sit and stare at them especially if the wind is blowing moving them. What a vision and talent this artist had. You have to see them to believe it!

Wonderful artworks. Read history of the artist and the controversy for the neighbors. Some works have been dispatched throughout the town now. Some at UCCS campus.

We were driving around and saw it by accident, mesmerizing! Worth the trip but because it’s a private property, be respectful and use your discretion.

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.
