Long Description:
The large, pre-rusted steel sculpture called “Windmark” by some, “Landmark” by some and “windthinggizmo” by others, was commissioned by David Sunderland of Gates Land Co. in 1972 when Cheyenne Mountain Ranch was being developed.

When the sculpture was completed in 1973 by Colorado College instructor Jack Edwards, it was placed alongside Colorado Highway 115 and later moved east to Quail Lake Park.

The weather-vane-type sculpture is huge, but it’s so graceful you can move it with a touch of a finger or by a gentle breeze.
