Bob Campbell is a local artist who shares his work with community members. As a graduate of the University of Tulsa, Mr. Campbell pursued art and community advocacy after a decorated 30-year career with Southwestern Bell Telephone Company, SBC, AT&T and consulting for a large systems integrator and a software network provider. Mr. Campbell’s career took his family from Texas to Mexico City, then from Las Vegas to Sacramento, and eventually back to Texas.
Mr. Campbell recalls, “I got into painting on a whim. I had been named the March of Dimes Chairman in Sacramento in 2005. I decided to paint 30 paintings and sell them to my co-workers as a way to raise awareness for the campaign.”
As Frisco’s efforts to build a performing arts center ramp up, his hope is to continue to support the arts locally, and he has recently donated several of his original paintings for auction. Mr. Campbell is a philanthropist, community activist and an active volunteer at St. Andrew Methodist Church’s food distribution center, Seven Loaves. He is part of Stonebriar Country Club’s “The Briar Club,” which is a group of 70 men who play golf together and support local charities like Small World and Frisco Fastpacs. Mr. Campbell also served as the president of the Stonebriar Park Home Owners Association (HOA) until last year. Mr. Campbell and his colleagues on the HOA have stayed busy representing neighborhoods with all the development exploding at The Star, Frisco Station and HALL Park.
