Kiefer: Painting, Sculpture, Woodcuts, Books,
through July 8. Anselm Kiefer is best known for his majestic,
thickly painted works of art that confront some of the darker
aspects of Germany's complex history. This exhibition includes
several of Kiefer's most recent works, as well as earlier large-scale
woodcuts and artist's books. Smart Museum; call 773/702-0200.
for a Long Future: The University of Chicago and its Donors,
through December 31. While John D. Rockefeller gave more to
the University in its early decades than any other donor,
Chicago also benefitted from the largesse of many other supporters.
Letters, documents, photographs, and memorabilia culled from
the University archives from the late 1800s and early 1900s
highlight these advocates who were instrumental in the founding
and growth of the new institution. Department of Special Collections;
America First": The Prints of H. C. Westermann,

painter, draftsman, and printmaker H. C. Westermann has been
a central figure in post-war American art. Nearly 50 lithographs,
linoleum cuts, woodblock prints, and drawings that influenced
figurative and pop art and the Chicago Imagist movement will
be on display. The exhibition will include an opening reception
and lecture on Friday, June 29. Smart Museum; call 773/702-0200.
