It is the case that almost everyone has an appreciation of fine art on some level. Unfortunately, very few who appreciate the arts are in a position to support them to the extent necessary. That may be why it seems as though Baryn Futa is attempting to pick up the slack for everyone else and that he would like to take on as much responsibility as possible. Of course, it is also possible that Baryn is making up for lost time.
You see, Baryn Futa didn’t always possess such a deep appreciation for the arts. In fact, it wasn’t until he retired from his business career and began working with the Denver Art Museum (DAM) that he developed anappreciation for the arts and their importance in culture and a culture’s history. Looking back, there was probably no one more surprised that he felt such a deep attraction to the art world than Baryn Futa himself, but he embraced it wholeheartedly. He used his time at DAM to fully cultivate his love of the arts and art history by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find. He even attended numerous arts appreciation classes and he eventually started and curated his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive over the years.
It is clear that Baryn Futa is trying to take on as much responsibility for art appreciation as is humanly possible. He sees the arts as a great cause that benefits all of society, he also sees it as a profitable and useful investment. He believes that the arts are a necessary and defining part of any culture and that the art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can.
