Windmark Sculpture – Quail Lake Park – (Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA)

On top of a hill around Quail Lake, you’ll see a large and what I thought was a brutalist sculpture. I found that it had several very interesting and dynamic angles to look at. Dynamic because even with a small push the entire sculpture gracefully moves and swings. Even a small breeze can give it a nudge.

It was completed in 1973 by Colorado College instructor Jack Edwards and placed alongside Colorado Highway 115. It was later moved east to Quail Lake Park where it sits today.

As you hike the small hill the sculpture begins to reveal it self.
Love the sweeping lines here. Very reminiscent of 1950+60s aerospace design.
Looking up and under it.
