It’s hard to believe these days, but Baryn Futa has not always possessed the deep appreciation for the arts he demonstrates now. In fact, most of his life was spent outside of the art world. Thankfully, something was sparked during his retirement, when he took a job with the Denver Art Museum. While he was at the DAM, Baryn Futa fully embraced his love of art and tried to cultivate that new love by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find that seemed interesting. He took art classes and even began his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive. These days, Baryn Futa is trying to change everything.

Ever since that time, Baryn Futa has developed a great appreciation for what the fine arts mean to any culture. It is that knowledge that has transformed him into a major art supporter and patron. While his deep attraction to the art world may have been surprising, it made him happy and gave him purpose. Baryn Futa strongly believes that art is too often taken for granted and not appreciated as a priority, so he has made it his life’s work to support the arts as a benefactor and lover of fine art. Brilliant artists should be appreciated enough to thrive, so he does what he can to make that happen.
