MILWAUKEE, WI.- In keeping with the tradition of friendly wagers, Carnegie Museum of Art and the Milwaukee Art Museum are venturing temporary loans of major works of art, based on the outcome of Super Bowl XLV between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers.

The stakes: A temporary loan of Milwaukee Art Museum’s prized Boating on the Yerres by Gustave Caillebotte, wagered by Director and avid Packer fan Daniel Keegan, and a temporary loan of the Carnegie Museum of Art’s Bathers with Crab, by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, wagered by Lynn Zelevansky, The Henry J. Heinz II Director of Carnegie Museum of Art, and a proud member of the Steelers nation. The winning city will receive a major work on loan, albeit temporarily, from the city that loses the big game.

“I’m confident that we will be enjoying the Renoir from Carnegie Museum of Art very soon. I look forward to displaying it where the public can enjoy it and be reminded of the superiority of the Green Bay Packers,” said Keegan of the Milwaukee Art Museum.

“In Pittsburgh, we believe trash talk is bad form. We let the excellence of our football team, and our collection, speak for itself. It will be my great pleasure to see the Caillebotte from the Milwaukee Art Museum hang in our galleries,” said Zelevansky, of Carnegie Museum of Art.

Super Bowl XLV will be played Sunday, February 6, at 5:30 p.m. (CST) in Dallas, Texas. Dates of the loan are still being finalized.
