Museum of Art and Design (MAD)
Stop by the re-created studio in the exhibition Ralph Pucci: The Art of the Mannequin for free demonstrations in sculpting from live models. Revealing his process of using traditional sculpting methods to create unique and forward-thinking mannequins, Michael Evert, Pucci’s sculptor, will sculpt new busts onsite. Working from a variety of models, ranging from Pucci collaborators to MAD members, Evert demonstrates firsthand what goes into making a mannequin for Ralph Pucci—a manufacturer who still engages in creating mannequin figures by hand.
On July 23, Michael Evert will live sculpt Anna Sui.
