Baryn Futa firmly believes that the arts are a defining part of any culture. That makes the arts a key to preserving a culture. What that means is that it’s necessary to preserve the arts for future generations. It is the case that the art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can and that makes the preservation of our art crucial for future generations.
That belief is what drives Baryn Futa’s status as a premier arts benefactor. When he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum, he became an art fan with an appreciation for the tremendous importance of the arts. Starting with his attendance at art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find, his love of art grew. He then took numerous arts classes and began collecting art himself. His collection has since become something very extensive and impressive.
With 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, Baryn Futa works hard to cultivate a greater appreciation for the arts everywhere he goes.
