Kansas City artist Benjamin Wills’ outreach to inmates began with letters of support to two acquaintances serving prison terms. Wills wrote to more men and women in confinement, becoming increasingly fascinated by their stories and common struggles with abandonment, lost identity, and sadness. When one sent him a paper airplane laden with messages, it inspired a unique project: the exhibit Airplanes, currently on display in the Central Library’s Guldner Gallery.
