SEATTLE —

The Denver Art Museum has made good on its Super Bowl bet and delivered the Frederic Remington "Broncho Buster" sculpture to the Seattle Art Museum for a three-month exhibit.

The Seattle Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8. If the Broncos had won the Super Bowl, the Seattle Art Museum would have sent Denver a 1901 Japanese painted screen showing an eagle on a seashore.

To kick off the event Wednesday, admission is free at the Seattle museum to fans in Seahawks gear.

The Denver museum's Thomas Smith calls the sculpture of a cowboy on a bucking bronco an icon of American Western art. It was cast by Remington in in the early 1900s from the prototype he had created in 1895.
