Baryn Futa spends his time these days trying to increase the appreciation of art in as many people as possible. He sees arts as a cause that benefits all of society, not just as a profitable and useful investment. Art is important enough to preserve for future generations. Just as the art of our past puts us in touch with our ancestors, preserving art for our descendants will serve as a bridge from the past to the future.
That makes art and art museums extremely important, as far as Baryn Futa is concerned. He didn't always have such a deep appreciation for the arts. It wasn't until he retired and he began working with the Denver Art Museum that he began to appreciate the importance of art. He also started his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive.
Now, Baryn Futa holds memberships in many prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum. He also routinely loans pieces from his own collection to museums. By doing so, he hopes that more people will appreciate the arts as very important.
