Mission Statement

The Mercyhurst Institute for Arts & Culture strengthens the vibrancy of the Erie region by presenting world-class performing arts experiences that lift the spirit, galvanize the intellect, stimulate the imagination and encourage the free exchange of ideas. By making these programs available and accessible to the broadest possible audience, the Institute strives to create an environment of richly varied, inclusive cultural experiences.



From luminaries of stage and screen to icons of the music industry, the 2019-20 MIAC Live series boasts a star-studded roster of performers.
