The arts are a defining part of any culture, according to Baryn Futa, and he is also of the belief that preservation of a culture is extremely important. It’s not possible to know where to go if you don’t know where you have been. As a society, we owe it to our descendants to preserve as much art as possible as a snapshot of this point in our development.

That is why Baryn Futa has become a major arts benefactor. It all started when he went into retirement and began working with the Denver Art Museum, he became more than an art fan; he came to appreciate the immense importance of the arts through his attendance in art classes, as well as art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find. Then he began to collect art himself and has built up a very extensive and impressive collection that he often lends to museums and galleries because he wants everyone to have his appreciation of the arts. The appreciation people show for art, the stronger the support for art creation and preservation.

Across society, and especially in the school system, the appreciation for art is dying. As a result of lacking funding for an arts education in addition to lacking financial support for art museums and other creative outlets, various artistic mediums are taking a back seat as we push through 2019. Art collector, appreciator and benefactor Baryn Futa, however, aims to change the perspective on the arts and improve the avenues of support it receives.

Futa believes that the arts deserve to be supported, that they provide something unique and special to society. He also knows that they are forgotten and frequently go without the support -- financial and otherwise -- that they sincerely need. Acknowledging that many artists cannot make a reasonable living on these endeavors, nor can many museums thrive long-term, Baryn Futa urges communities everywhere to join him in better supporting fine arts and the ways in which they unfold across the globe. Growth, after all, is dependent on that community support; the demise of the arts results from community and a lacking just as equally.
