Film Review  February 14, 2014, by Marc Savlov
"...The next we see him, it’s 1916 and he’s being pursued by a mob of black-suited bullyboys who are led by crime lord Pearly Soames (Crowe, hamming it up with suitable gusto). Lake escapes by divine destiny – a brilliant white steed, with ethereal wings no less, comes to his aid – and he’s off to burglarize the home of consumptive beauty Beverly Penn (Findlay)..."

News Story  July 7, 2006, by Kimberly Reeves

That's how Penn views the city's revised plans on the city's well-beloved park, Lady Bird Johnson's own personal valentine to the city of Austin..."

Le Muse Giocose (The Playful Muses)
Le Muse Giocose took Italian Baroque love songs as its heart, and the quality – and approachability – of the enchanting soprano Jenifer Thyssen and her musical collaborators was of the highest magnitude
Arts Review  February 20, 2004, by Robi Polgar
"...Desire was the name of the evening's game: Le Muse Giocose – in English, The Playful Muses – took Italian Baroque love songs as its heart, and the muses for this evening of heart, art, and architecture were the enchanting soprano Jenifer Thyssen and two visual artists, Jill Bedgood and Beverly Penn. The muses coupled Thyssen's repertoire of love songs with Bedgood and Penn's art installations; Thyssen was backed by a trio of gifted early-music performers: Scott Horton, Barrett Sills, and Laurie Young Stevens (who seems to be everywhere this classical season)...."

Heckerling updates Jane Austen's Emma to Beverly Hills.
Film Review  July 21, 1995, by Marc Savlov
"...Silverstone and the ensemble cast of generic high-schoolers (including a phenomenally ill-used Wallace Shawn replacing the Ray Walston character from Fast Times) tweak their way through a Fox sitcom-quality string of cheap gags and ham-handed teen angst that isn't so much humorous as it is boring. Perhaps it's unfair to keep returning to the comparison with Fast Times, but those characters -- Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, Sean Penn, et al..."

Austin Green Art
Arts Story  March 24, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...In 2004, he and Raul Garza founded Austin Green Art, a nonprofit that seeks to "create and install public artworks that reflect Austin's love of the natural environment." That might seem a narrow niche, but the brief history of Austin Green Art reveals the opposite to be true, as well as how much one small nonprofit can accomplish in less than two years. When the Austin Museum of Art hosted its Andy Goldsworthy show, Jewart collaborated with artists Beverly Penn and Margo Sawyer to transform Wooldridge Square into a giant Goldsworthy-esque sculpture, with bumps, lines, and circles made by volunteers using straw, leaves, and 200 bales of hay..."
