The Artistic Mission That Drives Baryn Futa

August 25, 2017

Whereas Baryn Futa currently sees the arts as a necessary and defining part of any culture and important enough to preserve for future generations, this was not a lifelong dream. In reality, he was late in appreciating the arts. He does know that the art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can and Baryn Futa strongly believes we owe it to future generations to preserve as much art as possible. Not only is art a useful and profitable investment, but it also benefits all of society. That said, his love and appreciation for art came somewhat late in life.

It wasn’t until Baryn Futa retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he began to fully appreciate the beauty and significance of the arts. No one was more surprised than he. He attended numerous arts classes and started his own art collection, which has become very extensive over the years. Now, Baryn has a number of memberships in prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum.
