By the mid-1980s, Oppenheim made sculpture based on the transformation of everyday objects. From the mid-1990s until his death in 2011, he focused on the production of large-scale permanent structures that combined sculpture and architecture. Oppenheim received a BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland, in 1965, and an MFA from Stanford University in 1966. He received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship in 1969, National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships in 1974 and 1982, and a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Vancouver Sculpture Biennale in 2007.
