John Ruppert spent time in Jordan as a young man, and his travels and archeogical experiences at that time left a lasting impression in him that still manifests itself through his artwork.
He is chair of the art deparment at the University of Maryland, College Park. Concurrently he has been actively exhibiting, particularly in the Maryland and Washington, D.C region. A major one-person exhibition, a fifteen year survey of Ruppert’s work which was organized in 1996, traveled to the Chicago Cultural Center, IL; The Contemporary Art Center of Virginia in Virginia Beach, VA; and the Cleveland Center for Contemporary Art, OH. Ruppert has had large-scale works on view outdoors at Stone Quarry Hill in Cazenovia, NY; at the Pier Walk annuals in Chicago; and at museums on various college campuses. His work was exhibited at the Baltimore Museum of Art in 2009, for which he was also presented with the Baker Artist Award, and the 2010 Shanghai Expo.
