Alyx Kellington
Director of Arts and Cultural Education, Palm Beach County Cultural Council
Alyx Kellington, originally from Austin, Texas, began traveling the world in 1981 and has lived in six states and four countries.
Alyx earned her degree in Photojournalism at the New England School of Photography in Boston and studied Latin American Studies at the Autonomous University of Mexico. She began her freelance career in El Salvador covering its civil war and its effects on children and later worked for clientele such as Newsweek, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe. As a photojournalist, Alyx visited over thirty countries to explore and document different cultures. Her photos have been widely published in newspapers, magazines and educational books.
Alyx has lived in Haiti, El Salvador and Mexico for several years at a time. She stayed with families and participated in their daily lives, learning the language, religion, and culture of these different peoples. A frequent public speaker at universities and organizations across the country, Alyx shared her images with audiences, using these visual tools to expand global awareness and explore humanity's similarities instead of the differences. Believing that "art is a universal language," Alyx began working with at-risk youth to break down stereotypes and open up dialogue.
This led to becoming a cultural educator to probationary youth, serving as the Fine Arts Director of the Boys and Girls Clubs in Austin, and working as Photo Editor, Education Division, at Steck-Vaughn Harcourt Publishing.
Focused on advocacy, education and art, Alyx moved to Palm Beach County in 2003. She served as project manager for Phase I of WallTogether, a mosaic mural at the Armory Art Center, involving over 600 youth. In 2006, Alyx started working with the Palm Beach County Cultural Council as Special Projects Coordinator with a strong focus on Education. In 2007, she was promoted to Director of Arts and Cultural Education.
Alyx lives in a refurbished bungalow in Lake Worth, Florida, with her two dogs and a variety of birds. She is the Chair of the Board for Blue Planet Writers International, an afterschool writing center for youth, and on the board of the Lake Worth Mayor's Climate Protection Task Force.
