DENVER — Denver curators are making good on their promise to give up some art — at least for a while — after losing a Super Bowl bet with their counterparts in Seattle.

The Denver Art Museum on Wednesday is crating up a Frederic Remington bronze of a cowboy on a bucking bronco to send to the Seattle Art Museum for three months.

The Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 in the Feb. 2 Super Bowl.

Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock also lost a Super Bowl bet. His office says it shipped green chile off to Seattle shortly after the game and will be auctioning off items such as handmade skis to raise money for the Seattle-based Lifelong AIDS Alliance nonprofit group.
