Participating in “Locked In,” from left, are videographer Travis Hawkes, and artists Jennifer Bachelder of Columbus, Ron Hundt of Kettering and Pierre Nagley of Yellow Springs. The installation runs Nov. 15–30 with an opening from 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 14. (Submitted photos)

    Put a Yellow Springs muralist, a Kettering city planner and a Columbus trash artist in a gallery. Add two boxes of random art materials. Allow them three tools apiece. Hire a videographer to record them.
    Then don’t let them out for three days.
