The fact of the matter is, Baryn Futa’s appreciation for fine art was a long time coming. He didn’t always have such a deep love for art. It wasn’t until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he found himself transforming into an art lover. That work led to his current quest to spread the word regarding the importance of art at every level of society and culture.

As he worked at the DAM, Baryn Futa took advantage of the opportunity to attend many art fairs and museum exhibitions and he did everything he could to give himself a strong art education. Baryn has also established his own art collection, which is now quite impressive. He sometimes loans pieces to prominent museums. By indulging his passion for the arts, Baryn seeks to encourage everyone he comes in contact with to appreciate the arts and to encourage greater support for artists and greater appreciation for their contributions to society.

In part because previous generations felt it important to preserve their art for us, Baryn Futa believes strongly that we owe it to our posterity and future generations to do the the same for our descendants. He believes art museums and art collectors are extremely important for preserving as much art as possible for the future. Whereas that realization came late for Baryn Futa, he is making up for lost time. In fact, he was already retired when he started working with the Denver Art Museum and became smitten with art almost immediately. He was attracted enough with art that he attended numerous arts classes and everything else he could.

He was so attracted to the art world that he soon established his own art collection, which has grown to be very substantial over the years. Besides his own art collection, Baryn Futa also holds memberships in many prominent art museums with impressive collections, like the Guggenheim, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Jewish Museum. Often, Baryn loans pieces from his own collection to museums because he wants to preserve art for the ages and that will only happen if more people to appreciate the arts as he does.
