Seattle Art Museum and New England's Clark Art Institute are wagering major paintings on the outcome of Sunday's Super Bowl. They'll be on a 3-month loan. Both dramatic seascapes of their regions.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

The art world has jumped into the Super Bowl rivalry. While hometown mayors might wager, say, lobster against local beer, Seattle Art Museum and New England's Clark Art Institute are wagering major paintings on a three-month loan - both spectacular seascapes of their regions. If the Seahawks win, Seattle will get a Winslow Homer masterpiece of a peninsula in Maine. If it's the Patriots, a dramatic rendering of Washington's "Puget Sound" will go East. It's MORNING EDITION.
