As with every football team, die hard fans live among their city. The Seattle Seahawks have those type of fans within the Seattle Art Museum.
The Seattle Art Museum is so confident in their Seahawks team, they decided to challenge two different New England museums to wager on the Super Bowl. The Clark Art Institute and the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) took them up on their proposed wager.
The winner gets the privilege of displaying a major work of art from the other museum for three months. The wagered masterpieces respectively showcase the beautiful landscapes of the Northwest and the Northeast.
