More than fifty pieces of artwork by Kansas prison inmates is on display at the Statehouse.

The works went on display today and will be exhibited for a week on the second floor of the Statehouse rotunda.

It’s the second show of inmate art at the statehouse in the past year and a half.

A spokesman for the State Corrections Department says the first exhibition drew many positive comments on the quality of the works and the importance of allowing inmates to express themselves creatively.
