Poema Ilustrado - Gallery Perito Moreno - Argentina

The Poema Ilustrado—Illustrated Poem—is a world where literary art meets the visual arts. For 20 years, Perito Moreno hosted competitions in this unique pictorial form, allowing poets and artists from all over Argentina's Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego to join creative forces. The collection of over 60 winning works is on permanent exhibit at the town's Centro Municipal de Cultura. Works span the genres, from metered to free verse, from realistic to abstract drawings.
