Growing into the Art World: Baryn Futa’s Journey

June 16, 2016
It’s simply not true that Baryn Futa always had a deep appreciation for the arts. In fact, most of his life was spent outside of the art world. However, when he retired, he began to work with the Denver Art Museum and that sparked something in him that made him appreciate just how important art was to the culture.

His deep attraction to the art world was surprising, but it made him happy and gave him purpose. During his time at the DAM, he embraced his love of art and cultivated his new love by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find that seemed interesting. He attended numerous arts classes and even started his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive.

These days, Baryn Futa 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. He wants brilliant artists to be appreciated enough to thrive, so he does what he can to make that happen.
Baryn Futa is an art collector who has sought to help expose people to new types of art. He has an extensive art collection currently, but this was certainly not always the case. Once upon a time, not so very long ago, Baryn Futa had no idea that he was interested in the arts. In fact, it was not until Baryn Futa’s retirement that he really discovered his interest in the fine arts and acted on that discovery.
