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, composed by 12 Brazilian artists and a Colombian, went on display on Tuesday at the Museum of Tomorrow, the modernist ship-like building designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava and set in Rio's renovated port area.

Carla Camurati, director of culture for the Rio Olympics, said the posters were meant to highlight the variations in a country of 200 million that is made up former African slaves, native peoples, Europeans from Portugal and across Europe, Japanese - and mixtures of many more.
