Design: Living with Scents
Odors are perceived with every breath we take and interpreted by our brain’s most ancestral parts. In the hands of contemporary designers, whose job it is to consider the interactions of minds, bodies, and things, scents can be mediated in innovative ways to raise a form of new sensory awareness. This exhibition features about 40 worldwide designers and artists whose work reflects and participates in the growing culturalization of all things olfactory. Visitors must be ticketed; $0 to $10. Museum of Craft and Design, 2569 Third Street. For more information.

Sports: “Major League Baseball’s First All-Black Lineup: The 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates”
On September 1, 1971, the Pittsburgh Pirates fielded the first all-black lineup in major league history, nearly a quarter century after Jackie Robinson broke baseball’s color barrier. The following month the Pirates won the 1971 World Series, with the lineup as its foundation. This two-hour course celebrates the 50th anniversary of this landmark achievement, highlighting the colorful characters crucial to the team’s success, like Roberto Clemento, the first Latino Hall of Famer; fellow Hall of Famer Willie Stargell, who attended high school in Alameda; and pitcher Dock Ellis, the iconoclastic All-Star who claimed to have pitched a no-hitter on LSD.
