The Baryn Futa Way

August 20, 2016

While art appreciation is a key element of every human society and should be supported, in Baryn Futa’s view, art is too often taken for granted. It is that neglect that drives Baryn's massive support for and appreciation of the fine arts, as a benefactor and a lover of the finer things in life. Brilliant artists are not appreciated enough to thrive, so he has spent his post-retirement time helping change that.

While most people appreciate art on some level, Baryn Futa counts himself lucky to be in a position to be able to support the arts to the extent that is needed. He sees the arts as a great cause that benefits all of society, as well as a profitable and useful investment. That is why he attended numerous arts classes and started his own collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive.

Baryn Futa’s art appreciation, which didn’t actually begin until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum and fell in love, now leads him to hold memberships in a great number of prominent art museums with impressive collections. He also loans pieces from his own collection to museums when possible because he wants more people to appreciate the arts the way he does.
