Baryn Futa Holds Much Stock on the Value of Art

October 22, 2020

As Baryn Futa sees things, art is a key element of every human society, which means that art should always be supported and protected, it is too often reality that art is taken for granted and not seen as a priority. That is what drives him as a lover of art and a major benefactor. Too often, Baryn Futa feels that great artists see too little appreciation and too often don’t make enough to thrive.

That’s a major motivating factor for Baryn, and why he expends so much time and effort doing as much as he can to alleviate that situation. He may be making up for lost time. he didn't always have such a deep appreciation for art. In fact, it wasn't until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he began to fully appreciate the importance of fine art, and no one was more surprised than he when that happened. At DAM, he cultivated his new-found love of the arts and art history by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find. Besides establishing his own art collection, which has grown to be very impressive, Baryn Futa also holds memberships in many prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum. When he can, he also loans his pieces to museums because he wants more people to appreciate and want to preserve art.
