So this is someone's private home off the beaten path. This would not be a destination but a detour when visiting either Seven Falls or The Broadmoor.

You'll never see these unless you're driving back in the canyons on the west side of town---if you're heading to North Cheyenne Canyon, Helen Hunt or Seven Falls, then be sure to stop. Amazing metal kinetic sculptures line a private yard. They're very futuristic and amazing works of art. Worth the visit...I ride past them on my bike all summer... More

Not easy to find, but quite magical once you get there. Great place to photograph the sculpture, and hiking within walking distance.

This guys work will leave you speechless. He made so may cool pieces that still lay in, and around his property. The city of Colorado Springs bought a few of his pieces that are downtown. It is right next to Seven Falls so just keep your eyes open, and you won't miss it.

We live in the neighborhood and enjoy these sculptures year round. On our way home from a walk, we saw a group of people in the yard. While it is tempting to go inside, typically the owner keeps it locked and the gates were all closed. This is private property, please enjoy the sculptures from the road, but do not... More

Walking from seven falls to the broadmoor we noticed a large metal bird and said "let's check that out". Extremely large metal sculptures, most kinetic. Very interesting, glad we walked back. Would interesting to visit on a winder day.

Even though there are just a few sculptures in this location, I love taking friends who are artists to see these sculptures! They are mesmerizing in the wind. The size, engineering, design and detailing in these pieces are fascinating. And don't forget to stop downtown to see the piece installed there on Colorado.

It's free and right outside the entrance to star Moyer discovery center. Enjoyed seeing them move with the gentle wind. This isn't a "must do" but why not?

Drove by after recommendation from a friend. Sculptures are much bigger and more prominent than we thought. Pullout around the corner to stop and look. Would be nice to have background, but interesting anyway.

If you're going to the Broadmoor or the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, this is a great, nearby stop. The metal sculptures are pretty cool to see and you can take photos from the street. I don't think you can go in and walk around, though. I wouldn't make a special trip.
