League Fellows: Alex Pemberton
As the founder of Yellowbrick Street Team and Director of Special Projects for Downtown Wichita, Alex Pemberton works to increase engagement through urban design interventions and creative placemaking. A native Kansan, Alex has lived in Wichita for over six years after moving to attend Wichita State University, where he earned the Fran Jabara Scholarship and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Business Administration with majors in Entrepreneurship, Management, and Economics with a Real Estate Emphasis. His tireless advocacy for improved quality of life is reflected in active membership in Young Professionals of Wichita and the Greater Wichita Partnership’s Perceptions Task Force.
With the brain of a businessman and the heart of an artist, Alex finds fulfillment in connecting communities through creative interventions and participative public art. He believes infusing creativity and happenstance into the everyday experience of a city pays dividends both culturally and economically – a prerequisite for a vital city in the 21st Century.
