There are many reasons why Baryn Futa has become a prolific arts benefactor. It all started when he went into retirement and began working with the Denver Art Museum, he became more than an art fan; he came to appreciate the immense importance of the arts through his attendance in art classes, as well as art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find. Then he began to collect art himself and has built up a very extensive and impressive collection that he often lends to museums and galleries because he wants everyone to have his appreciation of the arts. The appreciation people show for art, the stronger the support for art creation and preservation.
While many people possess some level of art appreciation, not everyone is Baryn Futa, who certainly feels art deep down inside. What separates Baryn Futa from most people, at least since he retired and discovered his passion and appreciation for art. Since then, he has supported the arts to the extent possible. Sometimes, it appears as if Baryn is attempting to make up for everyone else, as well as his own lost time.
