Community Art Pieces in Colorado Springs

The Center for the Arts in Colorado Springs is the home of three futuristic kinetic wind sculptures. Dubbed so because of their unique shapes, “Sunrise Serenade”, “Space Needle”, and “Metronome”, move with the wind. This movement brings so much life to the area and are truly a sight you won’t want to miss. These living sculptures were created by artist Starr Kempf in the 1970s, an artist well known for his work with kinetic sculptures and artful weather vanes.

And then there’s the Helios. This community art piece is a massive outdoor statue. It was created to honor the sunshine that pours down on Colorado Springs over half of the days of the year. It was put on display to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Colorado Springs’ Art on the Streets. Technically the title of this piece is Helios 38.104, which is a reference to the location of the work (38 degrees latitude, 104 degrees longitude). Helios was created by Patrick Mentz. Montana artist Patrick Mentz has completed dozens of public art commissions across the country.
