Detroit Institute of Arts 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit Midtown


It’s back. Just in time to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Detroit Tigers’ 1984 World Series championship, the DIA will once again look at baseball culture through the lens of an art history museum. This year’s exhibition explores the evolution of America’s pastime with a special focus on two championship teams, the 1887 Detroit Wolverines, Detroit’s first professional baseball and championship team, and the 1984 Detroit Tigers. Highlights include Ty Cobb memorabilia; the history of baseball cards, including the first card of an African-American player, Jackie Robinson; handwritten scorecards kept by announcer Ernie Harwell; and baseball-themed works of art from the DIA’s collection. 313-833-7900

KAWS: Alone Again

Wednesdays-Sundays, 7 p.m. Continues through Aug. 4


Remember when that 17-foot creepy Mickey Mouse-esque statue curiously appeared on the grounds of Quicken Loans’ campus downtown last year? The KAWS creation titled “Waiting” ignited a conversation about public art and how it speaks to its surrounding community. Now, more KAWS is coming to Detroit: In partnership with Library Street Collective, MOCAD will display five sculptures, a site-specific wall work, and three paintings by the renowned Brooklyn-based street artist. Alone Again boasts bold colors, abstractions, deconstruction, and commentary on turbulent times. The museum’s spring exhibition opening also welcomes 12 never-before-seen paintings by figurative surrealist Eddie Martinez, as well as Nicolas Lobo’s Wellness Center, which will be on display at Mike Kelley’s Mobile Homestead. Work will be on display through Aug 4. (313) 832-6622
