Artist Suzanne Heintz's mannequin wedding

Humans and mannequins alike gathered in Denver on June 16 to witness artist Suzanne Heintz renew her vows with Chauncey, the clothing-store dummy who has played her husband in her ongoing project Life Once Removed. But the nuptials were not to be: When the officiant asked if anyone present objected, Heintz spoke up, taking the opportunity to reflect on what she's learned about commitment and the value of her non-traditional life.
