Internationally renowned artist Dennis Oppenheim has passed...

It has been confirmed to me by the Public Relations and External Affairs department from the Studio of Dennis Oppenheim that Mr. Oppenheim has died. Mr. Oppenheim was currently completing work on two large Paintbrushes that are located in "18b" Las Vegas's Arts District in Downtown. Though the fate of the Paintbrushes is not known the best thing we can do at this time is offer our condolences and our prayers to the Oppenheim Family and of course to the arts community around the world.

Information on services are to follow.
