Baryn Futa’s Art Journey

Baryn Futa currently sees the arts as a great cause that benefits all of society, but he also sees it as a profitable and useful investment. As he sees things, the arts are a necessary and defining part of any culture, which makes them important enough to preserve for future generations. The art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can, which is precisely why Baryn Futa strongly feels that we owe it to future generations to preserve as much art as possible.

The reality is, Baryn Futa wasn’t exactly born with such a deep love for the arts. In fact, it wasn’t until he 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. Baryn now 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. As often as possible, he loans pieces from his own collection to museums because he wants more people to appreciate the arts the way he does. He wants our great-grandchildren to be able to look at art and touch the hands of their ancestors and know what life was like.
