The Wichita Art Museum has put together an exhibition depicting the dignity and plight of workers over 150 years.

"Occupy Art: Protest and Empathy for the Worker" reflects the empathy artists have for the common man. Occupy Wall Street protests were launched in September 2011 setting off an Occupy movement.

Artists have long pictured the common man in their works. Visitors to the Wichita Art Museum will soon have the chance to examine works of arts spanning 150 selected from the museum's permanent collection.

The museum says unsafe working conditions and the impact of wars on the poor are depicted in poignant works of art.

The exhibit was curated by Rachel Epp Buller, Assistant Professor of Art at Bethel College. It opens Saturday and runs until March 31.
