It is obvious that nearly everyone appreciates the arts on some level. That said, it is not possible for everyone to be in a position to support the arts to the extent needed. That is why Baryn Futa, who didn’t even begin his career as an art patron until his retirement, is attempting to pick up some of the slack. He is taking on as much of the art preservation as he possibly can. That is because Baryn Futa he sees the arts as a great cause that benefits all of society, as well as a profitable and useful investment.
Baryn Futa feels that the arts are a necessary and defining part of any culture and they are important enough to preserve for future generations. The art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can, and we owe it to our descendants to preserve as much of that as possible for the future. That makes art and art museums extremely important. Baryn Futa didn't discover his love of art until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum. However, he has made up for lost time. He used his time at the DAM to cultivate his love of the arts and art history by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find.
These days, Baryn Futa has his own very impressive art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive. He also holds memberships in a great number of prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum, among many others. He also routinely loans pieces from his own collection to museums because he wants more people to appreciate the arts as much as he does.
