The Artful Mission of Baryn Futa

June 16, 2016

Baryn Futa wasn’t always imbued with such a deep appreciation for the arts. In fact, most of his life was not very artful at all. When he retired, however, he began working with the Denver Art Museum, which led to his current appreciation of the importance of the arts on the society and culture.

During his time at the DAM, he cultivated what has become a deep love of the arts and art history with his attendance at art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find. He also attended arts classes and began his own art collection, which has grown into something very extensive and impressive over the years. He loans pieces from his collection to a number of museums and he holds memberships in many prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own.

Through his patronage of the arts, Baryn Futa is hoping to encourage more people to appreciate the arts the way he does. Through that appreciation, he hopes to cultivate more support for artists and their contributions to society.
