Museo Del Paraná Y Las Islas - Museum Rosario - Argentina

Museo del Paraná y las Islas was established by local artist Raúl Domínguez, who lived on one of the Alto Delta islands for several decades. His son Mario Domínguez Teixeira carries on the artistic tradition. The differences between their works are astounding. In somber colors, the father captured the lives of people scraping out a living on the isles. The son recounts regional indigenous myths and legends in brilliant colors.

The museum, though, is much more than just art. It also is a trip through the natural and human lives of the Alto Delta Islands. A typical islero rancho (hut) and boliche (pub) are erected inside. Also on display are indigenous ceramics, canoes, flora and fauna of the isles.
