The PEN 2017 graphic was designed by Amanda Ng Yann Chwen, International student from Malaysia and Tisch Scholar at Tufts University. Amanda is currently in year 2 at Mission Hill School as an intern. Amanda used portraits created by student artists S.Baez, A.Marcial, B.Rocha, and A.Goodman Goldstein. The artists created the portraits by moving the pencil in a continuous line on the paper, not lifting the pencil until the image was complete. They traced the pencil line with a dark ink. The continuous line in the artwork is a metaphor for the continuous lines of communication, dialogue and collaboration that this year’s conference theme embodies.
