Popular Colorado Sculptures and Statues

One of the most popular sculptures in Colorado Springs is called “Recycled Rainbow” by artist Maxine Grossman. Recycled Rainbow is a sculptural butterfly decorated with recycled materials and mosaics. It is located just outside of the church near the intersection of Cascade and Platte. There are actually many of these butterflies around the city. They are part of a program called “Flight” that is held by the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs. Each year, the sculptures are painted by local artists to help raise money and awareness for children’s art programs.

Another Colorado Springs favorite is the “Fuji Arch”, which sits in the median of Nevada Avenue’s intersection with Kiowa. This sculpture was presented to the city of Colorado Springs by the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs in 1966. This sculpture commemorates the city’s relationship with its sister city in Japan, Fujiyoshida. Fujiyoshida was Colorado Springs’ first established sister city of which now there are seven.
