The Austin Arts Hall of Fame Class of 2018
Actor/director Norman Blumensaadt, dance artists Kathy Dunn Hamrick and Anuradha Naimpally, and philanthropists Jeanne and Michael Klein join the ranks of cultural heroes
Arts Story  May 24, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...As Chronicle Dance writer Jonelle Seitz observed, each work seems "more sophisticated, more human, more poignant, and more important than the last. Hamrick's dances show us how to be: how to approach, how to respond, how to accept challenges and joys." In addition to the work of her own company, founded in 1999, the choreographer shows us how to be in the Hamrick/Warren Dance school, which she co-founded and has run with artistic partner Kate Warren since 1991; the studio Cafe Dance, which she's run since 1996; and the Austin Dance Festival, which she founded in 2015.

Jumper
Jumper is pretty slick, entertaining stuff about what young male teens might do if given the ability to teleport.
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  February 15, 2008, by Marc Savlov
"...Christensen, who's never really recovered from his woefully vanilla reading of the strapping young Sith lord-cum-Tiger Beat pinup, here gets to keep a girl, although not the girl (and not at the Hotel Chevalier, sadly), and beam his molecules all over the globe without ending up like Jeff Goldblum in The Fly. Actually, taken at face value, Jumper is pretty slick, entertaining stuff, well-crafted by Liman; edited into a tight, action-packed bundle of nerviness by Saar Klein (The Bourne Identity); and scripted with not a little Marvel Universality by David S..."

Point Austin: Making Sense of Newtown
A year later, small steps toward changing the gun violence paradigm
News Column  December 20, 2013, by Michael King
"...By executive order, President Barack Obama has directed the CDC to resume research on firearms, which had been effectively prohibited by Congress. And Slate's gun deaths project is about to be assumed and expanded by the newly established Gun Violence Archive, a nonprofit funded by Michael Klein, who plans to incorporate official statistics on all forms of gun violence: "Once the integrity of what we're doing is evident," Klein told Kois, "I hope we'll get buy-in from police departments and city governments to share their reports in a timely manner."..."

DAILY News  June 4, 2014, by R.U. Steinberg
"...What they are looking at primarily are our campus climate surveys that are done every year by the faculty, students, and parents. Some of the questions for kids are SEL type questions like, 'Do I feel safe on my campus?' 'Do students treat one another with respect?' 'Do I feel welcome in my classroom?'"

A Home for 'Progress' (and 'Border Crossing')
The Blanton acquires a pair of Luis Jiménez sculptures
DAILY Arts  December 20, 2012, by Robert Faires
"...On Wednesday, the Blanton announced that, thanks to the efforts of an anonymous donor and longtime museum benefactors Jeanne and Michael Klein, its permanent collection would now be home to Jiménez's Progress II (1976), a massive sculpture of a vaquero roping a snarling steer with glowing red eyes, and Border Crossing (1989), the image of a family – man carrying woman carrying infant – heading north across the Rio Grande. The former work, which was recently refurbished through the support of the unnamed donor, has been on display in the second floor collection galleries for a few months now and proven to be a very popular draw, according to Blanton curator at large Annette DiMeo Carlozzi..."

Helen Klein Ross talks about tweeting in character
DAILY Screens  March 12, 2011, by Belinda Acosta
"...Helen Klein Ross is so much more cheery than her Twitter handle, @BettyDraper, named for the sullen Mad Men character Ross channels to write her 140 character missives on Twitter. That made attending her Friday workshop on how to fully exploit the short, short, short form – aka the tweet – that much more enjoyable...."

News Story  October 1, 2004, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...In a whiff of rhetoric reminiscent of none other than the retired but unlamented Phil "Mad Dog" Gramm, Republican CD 25 candidate Becky Armendariz Klein ("but it's 'Rebecca' on the ballot!") has accused her opponent, incumbent Democrat Lloyd Doggett, D-Austin, of being a "pro-abortionist, an advocate of a homosexual agenda, and [he] opposes school prayer and religious freedom of expression." Klein offered no substantiation, but she may be looking beyond November to a post-election appointment (should President Bush win) to Michael Powell's chair at the FCC. Speculation persists that Powell will be stepping down – either for a judicial appointment or to run for office – and Klein, formerly furniture at the Texas Public Utility Commission, is often mentioned as a likely successor..."
