Illustrator Istvan Banyai to speak at Pentucket meeting

(Continued)

He continues to produce commercial illustrations for publications such as The New Yorker, Time Magazine, and Atlantic Monthly; cover art for Sony and Verve Records; and animated short films for Nickelodeon and MTV Europe.

Mulqueen said Banyi has become “internationally respected for his unique philosophical and iconoclastic vision, thus transcending the status of commercial illustrator to gifted artist.”

The Pentucket Education Foundation and the Pentucket Arts Foundation helped to bring this notable guest speaker to the district.

The district also announced last week that its online bus application and payment process is now available on the Pentucket website, www.prsd.org. All students who plan to ride the bus to school are required to get a pass by Sept. 12. Anyone living within 1.5 miles of their school must pay an annual fee of $180 for a round trip pass or $90 for a morning, afternoon, or winter-only pass. Under state law students living outside that distance don’t pay for transportation, but they should still apply online to obtain a bus pass. Bus passes will be distributed shortly after Sept. 12.
