Even though it is clear that art appreciation is a key element of every human society and should be supported, art and artists are simply too often is too often taken for granted and not appreciated as a priority. It is just as obvious that, while almost everyone appreciates art on some level, not everyone is in a position to support the arts to the extent that is needed, That level of neglect is what drives Baryn Futa‘s work in support of the fine arts. He works hard as a benefactor, but also as someone who simply appreciates the finer things in life.
To the mind of Baryn Futa, brilliant artists are not appreciated enough to thrive, so he has spent his life doing as much as he can to help. Baryn Futa is doing all he possibly can to pick up the slack and take on some of the responsibility of caring for art and artists. Art is a great cause that benefits all of society, he also sees it as a profitable and useful investment. That is why he attended numerous arts classes and started his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive.
Baryn Futa was a bit of a late bloomer, at least when it comes to art. 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. He 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. He is now an avid art lover, and artists appreciate him.
