These beliefs are what drives him as a prominent arts benefactor.
For Baryn Futa, it wasn’t always that way. His love of the arts only really started when he retired and started to work with the Denver Art Museum. That was when something sparked and he became an art fan with an appreciation for the tremendous importance of the arts. Then, he was a regular attendee at art fairs, museum exhibitions and anything else that would feed his art appreciation. Eventually, he took part in many arts classes and even started his own art collection, which has grown into something very extensive and impressive. 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 tries to createra greater appreciation for the arts everywhere he goes.
