Lurie has shown at numerous other Galleries and Museums, performing his paintings, poetry and music, a process which he calls SYNESTHESIA, "my vision of the interlacing of the various major art disciplines: music, language, painting and performance. Each has always influenced and existed within the other, and painting, for me, has become the ultimate synthesis, the mortar which binds all forms together."

Lurie has also composed 13 Symphonies for Spoken-Voiced-Orchestra, published 19 books of poetry and produced several albums and CD's. His most recent major paintings, Beethoven's 9th Symphony, 120 square feet, and Symphony #12 on the Holocaust and Symphony 13, both 8x8 feet, on canvas. In 2000 Lurie visited the Peace Memorial Museum in Hiroshima and presented the museum a copy of his Symphonic Elegy for four voices, Hiroshima, and a Videotape of a performance of that work.
