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.
