It is simply the case that Baryn Futa did no always have such a strong and deep appreciation for the arts. In point of fact, he really didn’t care much about art for most of his life. However, when he retired, he began working with the Denver Art Museum. That is when he began to fully appreciate the importance of the arts. He got into it fully, as is his tendency. The reality is, no one was more surprised than Baryn Futa when it came to the depth of his love of art. At the DAM, he cultivated his new-found love as much as he possibly could and he learned everything he could about art history, by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find.

It was during this time that Baryn Futa also established his own art collection, which has grown to be quite impressive, to be sure. Baryn holds memberships in many prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum.
