Calcagno Cullen, who runs Camp Washington’s Wave Pool Gallery with husband Geoffrey, travels north to Piqua, Ohio to open a show of her own work, Asylum, at the Edison Art Gallery on Edison Community College’s campus. The work originated with a trip she took last summer to a Southern Italian refugee camp to make art with young men seeking to escape Libya for a new life in Europe. The show’s centerpiece is a large mandala holding 1,000 origami folded boats created from refugee-designed wallpaper.


Opening reception 5-8 p.m. Saturday. On view through Feb. 26. Free. Edison Community College, 1973 Edison Drive, Piqua, telephoneheart.com
