These kinetic sculptures were created by an exceptionally talented artist. Some are bird-like, others are made with unusual shapes moving is tandem with one another. 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!

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.

I was just driving around Colorado Springs and accidentally ran across Kempf's sculptures. They wonderful....well worth a side trip. My guess is that you can't buy them any more but I'd sure like to have one.

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.
