Baryn Futa’s love of fine art was a long time coming. His love of the arts started during retirement, when he took a job with the Denver Art Museum. There, he became an art aficionado unlike most others. He developed an appreciation for the tremendous importance of the arts. Starting with his attendance at art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find, his love of art grew. He then took numerous arts classes and began collecting art himself.
These days, Baryn Futa firmly believes that the arts are a defining part of any culture. It is that status that makes art a key element of preserving our culture for future generations. Because the art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can, the art of today will create a touchstone for future generations. That makes art preservation a crucial task, which is why Baryn Futa is motivated to be a prominent arts benefactor. His impressive art collection has since become very extensive and impressive and he has memberships with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum, among many other museums with huge collections.
