The Aurora Downtown Outdoor Art and Science Walk was initiated by the Aurora Public Art Commission in 1999. The Art and Science Walk offers large-scale contemporary sculptures, each of which demonstrates intriguing scientific themes and principles. The purpose of the Walk is to provide highly visible and easily accessible objects of art and learning, which will simultaneously beautify the downtown and provide interactive educational opportunities for both residents and non-residents. In 1999 Aurora Public Art commissioned artist Christian Tobin to create a sculpture for the corner of Stolp Avenue and Benton Street. Tobin created Isaac2/Swimming Stones, a kinetic, interactive sculpture and fountain. the "Swimming Stones" which were unveiled on June 29, 2001 transformed the Stolp Avenue and Benton Street site from an empty green space to a promenade and gathering place for visitors of all ages.
