From Baryn Futa’s perspective, overstating the importance of the arts on any society is virtually impossible because art is a necessary and defining element of any culture. The arts serve as a touchstone from the modern day to our ancestors and the art of today will be a touchtone that will connect us to our descendants. That's why we owe it to our grandchildren to preserve as much art as possible for the future.
Baryn Futa’s view of the arts makes art museums and art preservation in general extremely important, as far as Baryn Futa is concerned. Because fine art represents where a society is, he has a strong desire to preserve that for the ages. That is why he is interested in getting more people to appreciate the arts as much as he does. Hence his memberships in a great number of prominent art museums with impressive collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and many more. Preservation is his main motivation for developing and maintaining his own large and impressive art collection. It’s also why he routinely loans his art to museums. Art is what defines society and we owe it to our children and grandchildren to preserve art for them.
