Artist Suzanne Heintz's mannequin wedding

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.
