RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – Most Olympics have only one official poster. The Rio de Janeiro Games will have 13, a collection meant to showcase the diversity of Latin America’s largest country.

The collection, made by 12 Brazilian artists and a Colombian, went on display on Tuesday at the Museum of Tomorrow, the modernist building built by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava in Rio’s renovated port area.

Carla Camurati, director of culture for the Rio Olympics, says it was “really hard for us in Brazil to choose one artist to represent the Olympic Games.”

The brightly colored posters – mostly yellow, green, red, and blue – will remain in the museum until July 22, and then displayed in the cluster of venues known as Deodoro in the northern part of Rio.
