Art on Film is a gift to procrastinators who wanted to see Kenneth Love's documentaries about puppeteer Margo Lovelace and sculptor Thaddeus Mosley but couldn't find the time back in November.

The shorts are part of Pittsburgh Filmmakers' annual series exploring artists and their creative process in photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, music, puppetry, architecture or video game design.

Movies are free and screen at the Harris Theater, 809 Liberty Ave., Downtown June 6-14 during the Three Rivers Arts Festival.
