Artist Howard Ben Tré is a favorite son of Providence
Artist’s adopted city marked by sculptures with light and soul
While Howard Ben Tré’s work is included in the collections of the MFA, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and 85 other museums, it is his adopted hometown of Providence that has benefited most from his artistry. Ben Tré enrolled at Rhode Island School of Design, working under the tutelage of renowned glass artist Dale Chihuly, and received his MFA in 1980. Four years later, he set up shop in Pawtucket, where he continues to work today.
