HOUSTON (April 5, 2010) Houston native Tom Hair, President of Axiom, was recently named to the Art League Houston (ALH) Board of Directors for a three-year term.
Degreed in the Graphic Arts, Hair has been inspired by his academic history, which has included classes and labs at the Art League Houston, Glassell School of Art (MFAH), School of Visual Arts (NY) and Texas Tech University. This inspiration continues today at Axiom, founded in 1998 as a marketing strategy and creative communications agency.
“Joining the Board of Directors of ALH takes me from student to patron, now working to provide the general public and deserving individuals an opportunity to take advantage of the variety of programs offered by Art League Houston,” said Hair. “I’m excited to offer the experience gained from managing Axiom successfully for 12 years and bringing the combination of creative energy and business acumen to the Art League Houston.”
