With the launch of this website, the MCA has created a platform for archiving and publishing images and stories from our 50-year history. Though many pages currently lack descriptions or illustrations, we’re committed to a program of ongoing research that will fill in the blanks over time. If you have information about past MCA Stage events, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Andrius Kuprevicius - Music and Art of Mikalojus K. Ciurlionis - This year was the 100th anniversary of Lithuanian artist/composer M.K. Ciurlionis, whose introduction of structural principles of music into visual form heralded the development of abstract 20th-century art and non-figurative painting. Both the music and art of this Symbolist innovator were presented in a program of piano works, performed by Andrius Kuprevicius, Chairman of the Piano Department of Cleveland State University. Ira Licht, Curator, presented slides of Ciurlionis' paintings with commentary.
