The Super Bowl is not only a big time of year for sports fans, but gamblers alike. Many unexpected people are attempting to cash in on this year's game, including art curators from across the country.

Recently, Modern Art Notes announced that it will hold its second annual betting competition for art facilities and their administrators who are confident in their ability to pick the Super Bowl winner, according to the Boston Globe. Museums from the two Super Bowl teams' states can participate by placing one of their art works on the line.

This year, the Carnegie Museum in Pennsylvania, and the Milwaukee Art Museum in Wisconsin are making bets on the big game. Renoir's "Bathers with a Crab" is up for grabs for the Steelers, while Caillebotte's "Boating on the Yerres" is on the line for the Packers.

"[I am] confident that we will be enjoying the Renoir from Carnegie Museum of Art very soon," Daniel Keegan, director of the Milwaukee Art Museum told the news source.

Museums may inspire individuals to pursue an education in the arts. Employment of artists is expected to increase by 12 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
