Super Bowl Smack Talk

The Renoir seemed a little "sentimental?" The chalice was a bit like a "tschochke?" Holy crap, these art museum directors can talk some smack!

Listen to the directors of the Indianapolis Museum of Art and the New Orleans Museum of Art talking trash about each other's collections on NPR as they make a little "friendly" Super Bowl wager with art from their collections as the stakes.

For some background on the bet (and more choice smacktalk soundbites that would make Jim Rome proud), check out this blog post.

Also, it would seem that when not using his collection for gambling, IMA director Maxwell Anderson has been pretty busy; his museum is about to launch a new website. I was sent this invitation to view it, which I will now share with you!
