30 percent of art sales benefit the WCA

The inspiration for “Heroes of Hope” is the story of a woman who was rescued from a rapist by two Stanford Swedish graduate students on bicycles Peter Jonsson and Carl-Fredrik Arndt. They stopped Brock Turner’s attack as he was raping an unconscious and intoxicated 22-year-old woman behind a dumpster on the Stanford University campus. The two then chased him down and held him until police arrived.

The art will remain on exhibit until Saturday, Oct. 1.

The victim reportedly keeps a drawing of two bicycles over her bed to remind her there are heroes in the world.

$10 at the door. All proceeds benefit the Women and Children’s Alliance.
