The official posters for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games were unveiled on Tuesday (12 July) night at the city’s iconic Museum of Tomorrow.

The works have been produced by 12 Brazilian artists – Alexandre Mancini, Antônio Dias, Beatriz Milhazes, Claudio Tozzi, Ana Clara Schindler, Gringo Cardia, Gustavo Greco, Gustavo Piqueira, Guto Lacaz, Juarez Machado, Kobra and Rico Lins – and one Colombian, Olga Amaral.

“You have Brazil and the Games represented in very different ways, from the child with the kite, to the torch, the Olympic rings, and so on,” said Carla Camurati, Rio 2016’s culture director.
