Van Bruggen’s first collaboration with Claes Oldenburg was in 1976, when Trowel I, originally shown at Sonsbeek 71, was rebuilt and relocated in the sculpture garden of the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, the Netherlands. In 1978 van Bruggen moved to New York, where she continued to work with Oldenburg to establish direct contact with a wider audience by creating large-scale, site-specific works in urban settings.

Their collaboration has extended to smaller-scale park and garden sculptures as well as to indoor installations. The couple, married in 1977, has executed over forty Large-Scale Projects, which have been inserted into various urban surroundings in Europe, Asia, and the United States.
