Wayfinding: Just a short walk down Ute Pass Ave. from the stop sign in the center of town at Ute Pass Ave. and Hotel Street. Keep heading down Ute Pass Ave. toward Chipita Park and Four Orbits will be on your right at Mountain Road Corner.
Four Orbits is an incredible 21’ tall bronze sculpture by Charles O. Perry (1929-2011). Perry was a creator, an artist of many dimensions who pondered the wonderful mysteries of the universe. His large scale and monumental sculptures celebrate and question the laws of nature. His intuitive investigation of nature’s variables provides the springboard for many of Perry’s concepts.
Believing that sculpture must stand on its own merit without need of explanation, Perry’s work has an elegance of form that masks the mathematical complexity of its genesis. Perry’s Four Orbits sculpture is dark bronze, eleven feet tall, and weighs about 5,000 pounds. It is mounted on a ten-foot stainless steel pole.
