Staying dedicated to the arts is not an easy task. Artists creatively produce on their own schedule, most often, as creative expression takes hold. Artists come in all shapes and sizes — musically inclined at times or some with giant sculptures and others with small interpretive portraits that not everyone can understand. Museums showcase various exhibits that bring individuals through the doors and garner conversation, making it a challenge for every artist to feel welcome. It’s a complicated medium to throw oneself into, particularly as a supporter when art does not always bring in many dollars. But fine arts appreciator and benefactor Baryn Futa has done just this — he has wholly dedicated himself to this creative medium in its many forms, supporting artists and museums alike. Futa has remained committed through difficult moments, including the recent recession, and worked with organizations as they thrive. Art may ride waves of success and not be reliantly consistent, but Baryn Futa remains dedicated in his support and encourages other art lovers to do the same despite the rocky waters.
