TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- More than 50 artworks by Kansas prison inmates are going on display in the Statehouse.

The works will be exhibited for a week beginning Friday on the second floor of the Capitol in Topeka. It's the second show of inmate art at the Statehouse in 18 months.

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

The spokesman, Jeremy Barclay, says that some of the works incorporate their creators' regrets and remorse for their crimes.
