Baryn Futa hasn’t always had such a deep appreciation for the arts. In fact, it wasn’t until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he became an art lover. That work led to his current appreciation of the importance of the arts on the society and culture.
While he was at the DAM, something clicked inside and he cultivated what has become a deep love affair with the arts and art history. He was sure to attend art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find. He attended arts classes and even started his own art collection, a collection that has since grown into one of the more impressive collections in the country. Sometimes, he even loans pieces from his collection to prominent museums. He also has memberships in many of the best art museums. By indulging his passion for the arts, Baryn Futa wants to encourage everyone to appreciate the arts as he does, and to encourage more support for artists and their contributions to society.
