PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The former artistic director of Providence’s Trinity Repertory Company has been selected to receive the 2016 Pell Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts.

The company where Eustis spent 11 years as artistic director has given out the awards since 1996.

Eustis left Trinity in 2005 to become artistic director of The Public Theater in New York. While there, he has produced acclaimed works such as Fun Home, Hamilton and the revival of Hair. He won Tony Awards for Hair and Fun Home.

Past honorees include actresses Viola Davis and Liza Minnelli, authors Toni Morrison, actor Robert Redford and artist and writer Maurice Sendak.

Local businesswoman and philanthropist Elizabeth Z. Chace will receive the Charles Sullivan Award for Distinguished Service in the Arts during the awards ceremony in May.
