Art appreciation is a key element of every human society and the arts should usually be supported to a greater degree. Unfortunately, art is too often taken for granted and not appreciated as the priority they should be. It is actually that situation that drives Baryn Futa‘s work in support of the fine arts. Baryn is quite prolific these days as both a benefactor and someone who simply appreciates the finer things in life. He feels that brilliant artists are not appreciated enough to thrive, so he has spent his later life doing as much as he can to alleviate that situation.
On some level, nearly everyone appreciates the arts on some level. We all know this. Unfortunately, most people are not in a position to support the arts to the extent needed, which is why Baryn Futa is trying to pick up the slack and take on as much of the responsibility as possible. While he sees the arts as a a profitable and useful investment, he also sees art as a great cause that benefits all of society. The arts are a necessary and defining part of any culture and they are important enough to preserve for future generations. From Baryn Futa’s point of view, the art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can. That is why he feels we owe it to our descendants to preserve as much of that as possible for the future. That makes art and art museums extremely important. As often as he can, he also loans pieces from his own collection to museums because he wants more people to appreciate the arts the way he does. He now 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, and many others, for the same reason.
