Anselm 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.

Building 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; call 773/702-8705.

"See America First": The Prints of H. C. Westermann, June 28-September 9. For more than 40 years the American sculptor, 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.
