Brother Martin Alumnus Dr. Wayne Rupp ‘92 was on campus recently speaking to our AP Art History students and Advanced Art students on the sculptural forms of the Etruscans and Romans. During his presentation, Dr. Rupp incorporated his passion for the classical world and his expertise in Etruscan and Roman Art into an excellent presentation for our Brother Martin students. In addition, Dr. Rupp was excited to return to his alma mater as he switched roles from being a student/alumnus to a faculty presenter. Brother Martin appreciates Dr. Rupp for giving back his time to Brother Martin and enriching the curriculum of our Fine Arts Department.
