About Dan Oppenheimer
Dan Oppenheimer is an entrepreneur, inventor, investor and craftsman located in Memphis, TN. He is the founder and/or proprietor of several decorative arts companies, including Rainbow Stained Glass Studio, Robinson Editions, Robinson Archive, Jack Robinson Gallery and Museum, Radio Memphis and Scale Models Unlimited and more.
Dan opened the stained glass studio in 1975, and for 40 years Rainbow Studio has continued to produce stained glass windows and other decorative glass for churches, hospitals, hotels, restaurants and residences across the country.
In the late 70s, photographer Jack Robinson began to work for Rainbow Studio as a designer. When he died in 1997, he left his estate of some 150-200,000 negatives and copyrights of images he made in New Orleans from 1945-1955 and all of his fashion and celebrity photography from New York in the 50s, 60s and 70s to Dan. To preserve his legacy, Dan founded Jack Robinson Gallery and Archive in downtown Memphis.
Robinson Editions was born from the Robinson Archive. The company specializes in vintage and contemporary Americana photographic images primarily for the hospitality industry across America, but has images from many other countries and genres. They offer paper, canvas, acrylic and brushed aluminum, archival prints. The company also creates and prints large-format imaging for commercial locations, as well as offering other custom imaging and creative services.
The four-floor 25,000 square foot building in downtown Memphis that houses all of these companies is full of experts ready to consult with clients one-on-one in order to find the best creative solution for any project – from religious windows to architectural models to digitally-composed printed murals.
