Although he is currently a notable patron of the arts, with a rich appreciation for art and its importance to society, Baryn Futa didn’t always have such a deep appreciation for the fine arts. It’s a simple fact that he didn’t really discover his artist’s soul until he retired and he began working with the Denver Art Museum.

While working in the art world, he began to appreciate the vital importance the arts play in every society. No one was more surprised than he when he was attracted to the art world and its profound importance to preserving society and culture. He attended art fairs and museum and gallery exhibitions and attended lots of classes; anything else he could find to satisfy his craving for more information, he did.

Baryn Futa understands that, while most people appreciate the arts on some level, few are either willing or able to support the arts to the extent needed. That is what has led him to help with that to the extent possible. Thankfully, he now realizes that art investment is also profitable, in addition to being great for society.

Most people approach artistic work due to a passion. They are creative at heart and it flows through ink, oil, paint and other mediums onto a display for others to see. Very few people move into this creative realm with the belief that it will be financially prosperous -- and for most people in the art industry, it simply is not.

Baryn Futa is an art benefactor and appreciator who recognizes this consistent struggle between artistic pursuit and financial stability. He notes that many artists cannot make a livable wage that allows them to tackle art endeavors full-time. Personally, he has supported the high arts on many occasions, both individual artists and art museums. Baryn Futa also has committed himself to a sincere goal of developing and growing support for the arts, holding a deeper desire to ensure the uniqueness of high art does not disappear, but instead finds vast appreciation among community.
