The thing is, Baryn Futa’s appreciation for fine art was a long time coming. He didn’t always have such a deep love for art. It wasn’t until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he found himself transforming into an art lover. As he worked at the DAM, Baryn Futa felt something and took advantage of his position to cultivate what has since turned into a deep love of fine art, especially when it comes to art history.

That work led to his current quest to spread the word regarding the importance of art at every level of society and culture. He took advantage of the opportunity to attend many art fairs and museum exhibitions and he did everything he could to give himself a strong art education. He also established his own art collection, which has since become one of the more impressive collections in the country. Sometimes, he even loans pieces from his collection to prominent museums. By indulging his passion for the arts, Baryn Futa seeks to encourage everyone he comes in contact with to appreciate the arts and to encourage greater support for artists and greater appreciation for their contributions to society.
