Retiring to Art: Baryn Futa

November 17, 2016

It can be said that, at least these days, Baryn Futa spends his time trying to cultivate an appreciation of arts 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.

To Baryn Futa, that makes art collections and art museums extremely important. 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. Baryn also 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 much as he does.
