Although Salvador Duran's art has been shown around town for years, including that large mural painted in the Rialto Theatre alleyway, the artist and musician is exploring a new frontier with his new show "What We Will Get." 

Featuring Duran's series of paintings under the same title, his work displays his life experiences including social and economic protests in Mexico. However, this showing also features something entirely different for Duran in the way of mosaic works.

For his first showing of his work with stone and metal, Duran sourced some of his materials from Brazil, but learned the craft initially from a Philadelphia mosaic artist and teacher.

While the paintings will be up in the lobby from May 30 until July 22, the unique mosaic pieces will only be on view as a part of Duran's opening artist's reception. You can see all of the pieces, as well as Duran himself, at the event on Saturday, May 30 from 6 until 8 p.m. in the hotel's lobby, located at 311 E. Congress St. It is free to attend. 

And for more information on Duran, his art and his inspiration, read Tucson Weekly's feature on the artist, which ran in July 2010. There, Duran says, "I paint my music and sing my paintings," a sentiment he relays frequently to this day.
