While Baryn Futa believes that most everyone appreciates the arts on some level, he also realizes not everyone is in a position to support the arts to the extent that is needed. In a way, Baryn Futa has taken it upon himself to take on as much of the responsibility for the future of arts as he possibly can. He wants to make up for those who can’t afford to make a significant art investment. These days, Baryn Futa holds prominent memberships in a large number of very important art museums with impressive collections of their own, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum.
Baryn himself has built up an excellent art collection of his own over the years because he believes that art preservation is enormously important. Baryn Futa sees art as far more than a great investment with a great return, however; his art preservation efforts represent a noble cause that benefits all of society in ways many will never understand. From his perspective, the public must appreciate art more. That explains why Baryn Futa loans pieces from his own collection to museums as often as possible. The key to art preservation is art appreciation and people rarely appreciate what they don’t see.
