Two live sculpting events at the Museum of Arts and Design will cast the spotlight on Architectural Digest's Editor-in-Chief Margaret Russell and fashion designer Anna Sui. In tandem with the exhibition “Ralph Pucci: The Art of the Mannequin,” Ralph Pucci's master sculptor and longtime collaborator Michael Evert will sculpt the two notable women. The Sui event will be held on July 23 at 6 p.m. while Russell's will be held August 27 at 6 p.m., both at the museum's second-floor galleries.

The Pucci exhibit is the first of its kind, exploring the work of Pucci, known for his work with the mannequin form and for his collaborations with icons including Diane von Furstenberg, Patrick Naggar, Andrée Putman, Kenny Scharf, Sui, Isabel and Ruben Toledo and Christy Turlington. The exhibit will also feature a publication with a foreword penned by Russell, an essay by art historian Emily M. Orr on the history of mannequins and an interview with Pucci by Jake Yuzna, director of public programs at MAD.
