Chelsea Clinton, it turns out, is a Philadelphia Eagles fan. She and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, visited Minnesota last weekend to catch Super Bowl LII.
Before the game, Clinton and Mezvinsky (a Philly native, who "brought the @eagles to our marriage," Clinton explained via tweet) spent the afternoon exploring two Minneapolis cultural sites. The couple checked out the American Swedish Institute's Craft Bowl exhibition and even browsed the museum shop, according to ASI's official Twitter account.
Honored to have had @ChelseaClinton and her husband Marc Mezvinsky at @AmSwedInstitute yesterday! They raved about our #CraftBowl exhibition and shopped in the ASI Museum Store (@ShopSwedish) – Welcome back any time! https://t.co/Dd56NCxDRo— Am Swed Institute (@AmSwedInstitute) February 5, 2018
Reached by phone, an ASI spokeswoman added that museum staff kept their distance, with hopes of giving the couple privacy. "They didn't make much of a fuss," said marketing manager Karen Nelson. But Clinton and Mezvinsky are "mug collectors," Nelson explained, so they purchased one from the shop.
The couple also dropped by the Walker Art Center, with Clinton later tweeting: "Marc & I loved our pre-game Sunday explorations of @walkerartcenter & @AmSwedInstitute. Thank you to everyone who has helped make both so special!"
