Baryn Futa supports the fine arts

August 25, 2018
 
Due to lacking governmental attention and support, art programs are at a sharp decline and face troublesome times ahead. It is only with the assistance of fervent supports such as Baryn Futa that programs, artists and museums can collectively survive and thrive throughout communities. Futa is committed to a goal of supporting the arts and their growth; unfortunately, not all feel the same way and the arts -- both within schools and within the hearts of cities everywhere -- are suffering as a result. Individuals need to learn by Futa’s shining example and support this creative aspect of community or it truly faces disappearing entirely, leaving a vast void that cannot be filled.

The Art Appreciation Journey of Baryn Futa

May 24, 2018
 
It is simply a fact that Baryn Futa didn't always have such a deep appreciation for the arts. In fact, it wasn't until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he began to appreciate the importance of the arts. No one was more surprised than he that he felt such a deep attraction to the art world. Baryn Futa used his time at the DAM to cultivate his love of the arts and art history by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find.

Even though art appreciation is a key element of every human society and should be supported, it is too often taken for granted and not appreciated as a priority. It is that neglect that drives Baryn Futa's work in support of the fine arts, as both a benefactor and someone who simply appreciates the finer things in life. To his mind, brilliant artists are not appreciated enough to thrive, so he has spent his life doing as much as he can to help.

Nowadays, Baryn Futa holds memberships in many prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own, and he also loans pieces from his own personal collection to museums when possible because he wants more people to appreciate the arts the way he does. It is clear that not everyone is in a position to support the arts to the extent that is needed, so Baryn Futa is trying to pick up the slack and take on as much of the responsibility that he can. While he sees the arts as a great cause that benefits all of society, he also sees it as a profitable and useful investment.

Baryn Futa and The Appreciation of High Art

February 20, 2018
 
When one asks the question of what is considered “High Art”? There can be many responses in kind. Ideas varying from the quality of the work to its value. And more than that, the answer could expand to how the art was created and by whom. Another option would be that it is a definition best determined by the reach of the work itself. Many a scholar has noted the distinction between general culture and high culture being that of an endeavor towards the unachievable perfection that mankind attempts to attain. If this is the case, then it can be reasonably assumed that high art is that which endeavors towards the ideas of perfection using art as the medium.

Baryn Futa has a deep love for high art and it has become a life joy for him to be able to bask in its beauty when he is not working. Baryn Futa is not an artist himself, but has a high appreciation for those that live out that profession. Art is made to be appreciated by all who look upon it and the investment into art is an investment into the design of the human mind at play. Whenever given the option, Baryn Futa takes his time to understand and fully absorb the process and purpose of the high art that he spends his time on.
