Arts Patron Baryn Futa Helps Preserve Art for the Future

December 22, 2018
Baryn Futa feels fortunate to have his own large art collection, but he also possesses memberships in a large number of prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own. When he can, he loans pieces from his own collection to museums so that more people can benefit from art as much as he. As an arts benefactor, as well as someone with a fine appreciation of what art contributes to any society, Baryn Futa is too often disappointed when he realizes the reality that not enough great artists are able to thrive in society.

Baryn Futa feels grateful to be in a position to support the arts fully. He realizes that not everyone has the means to do so, which is why he takes on as much responsibility as he can handle. Support for art is certainly a great cause that benefits all of society. However, it also has the added benefit of being a profitable investment, as well. Apparently, while most people appreciate the arts and how beautiful they are, they tend to be relatively short-sighted and they don’t support those who create art in the first place. That is one reason he now tries as hard as he can, so as to pick up some of the slack.

Dedicated art supporter Baryn Futa

Art is an intrinsic part of life. Artists begin sketching without education. Artists express themselves without any formal boundaries developing their work. It’s an innate piece of society that tells a story and has since the beginning of time. Baryn Futa recognizes this vital piece of culture and strives to protect it through all measures -- and he has done so through the recession and into thriving times when support for the growth of the arts can be found easier. Futa encourages others to explore this beautiful piece of expression in the world, from globally renowned museums to community theaters and more, and support those who make art their life’s passion. Just as Baryn Futa has been called to aid the arts in every way possible, so, too, may others be called to do the same once they have thoroughly enjoyed just one moving painting or the perfect play on any given day.

Baryn Futa Appreciates Art as More Than an Investment

June 15, 2018
While virtually every human appreciates art on some level, not everyone is positioned to be able to support the arts to the extent that is needed. Nearly everyone agrees that art is beautiful and that it serves as a defining element of every human society that should be supported. Unfortunately for everyone, Baryn Futa has found that much of that art appreciation is superficial, which means art and artists is too often taken for granted. It is that level of neglect that drives Baryn Futa's work, which is largely to increase the level of support of the fine arts. As he sees things, brilliant should be welcomed as very important societal figures and they should not simply scrape by, they should thrive. That is why he spends so much of his time and energy trying to cultivate even greater art appreciation.

Baryn Futa is trying to pick up as much of the art appreciation slack as he can. He sees the arts as a great cause that benefits all of society, he also sees it as a profitable and useful investment. Strangely, Baryn Futa didn't always have such a deep appreciation for the arts. He was kind of a latecomer to the art world. It wasn't until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum (DAM) that an appreciation of the arts became apparent to him. It was like he was hit by a clap of thunder, and few were more surprised than he that he developed such a deep attraction to the art world.

Baryn Futa 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. He also took many arts classes and even established his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive.

The Artistic Mission of Baryn Futa

Because Baryn Futa believes that the arts are a necessary and defining part of any culture and that art is supremely important to preserve for future generations, these days, he 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. He also routinely loans pieces from his own very impressive art collection to museums because he wants more people to appreciate the arts as much as he does.

From the perspective of Baryn Futa, the art of the past serves to keep everyone in touch with our ancestors in ways that nothing else can. He feels we also owe it to our descendants to preserve as much art as possible for the future. That makes art and art museums extremely important. Whereas most would agree that art appreciation is a key element of every human society and that it should be supported, the fact of the matter is, artists are too often taken for granted and not appreciated as enough of a priority. In fact, that is what drives Baryn Futa's work in support of the fine arts, both as a benefactor and lover of art. Brilliant artists are not appreciated enough to thrive, so he does whatever he can to rectify that situation.

Baryn Futa was something of a latecomer to the art world. It wasn't until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he began to develop his appreciation of the importance of art. Perhaps no one was more surprised than he was by his deep attraction to the art world. He attended art fairs and museum exhibitions and he attended numerous arts classes and started his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive.
