Football Meets Art

Came across an item in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel this morning:

Museums Wager Impressionist Art on Their Super Bowl Teams.

We often hear of the mayors of the cities whose teams are involved in the Super Bowl making humorous bets on the game's outcome.  Each mayor puts up as his/her bid some speciality of the city or region: a crate of sausage, artisan beers, etc.  This  year the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Milwaukee Museum of Art  are betting one of their paintings!  Here's the link to the full story. (The images are of the two paintings involved in the wager as shown in the news item.)
