Baryn Futa and the Arts as a Touchstone

November 22, 2021
In its most basic terms, Baryn Futa believes strongly that that art is a cultural touchstone that allows each generation to communicate with other generations. Art is acritical element of any society, so it should be supported and protected to the extent possible. Unfortunately, as Bryn sees things, art is taken for granted too frequently and that should be discouraged.

That is the driving force behind Baryn Futa's extensive work in support of the arts. He sees himself as someone who appreciates the finer and subtler aspects of society. Because he realizes that brilliant artists are not shown adequate appreciation these days, he is driven to do everything possible to alleviate that. To that end, he attends as many arts classes as possible and his personal art collection has grown to be very extensive and impressive. Baryn Futa is also a very important member of many prominent art museums, such as the Guggenheim, The Jewish Museum and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, because they have fine collections, too. Through his strong support, Baryn hopes to encourage all to appreciate the arts as much as he, thus preserving it for the ages.

The value of art always seems like such a negotiable topic. Why one painting sells for hundreds of thousands more than another painting seems obscure and incredibly biased. But the reality is that art has value based on its service. Baryn Futa believes in the value of art and the power it can have to impact those that come into contact with it. And that is where the value often lies. Art can mean different things to different people, but the deeper the meanings, the more value it attains. Baryn Futa supports the arts and desires that all get to experience the joy and the depths of art.

Baryn Futa on How Arts Make Society Better

March 29, 2017
As a fine arts patron and benefactor, Baryn Futa currently holds memberships in a large number of preeminent art museums with impressive collections. He maintains memberships because he truly believes that preserving art for future generations is essential to the preservation of societal identity. Among his memberships include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum, all of which have what he feels are essential art collections.

Baryn Futa has also cultivated a large collection of his own and he loans pieces to museums whenever he can. His overall goal is to encourage more people to appreciate the arts as much as he does. To Baryn, it’s simply not possible to overstate the importance of art as an essential and defining element of any culture. Preservation of art from all generations is one of the most important things we can do, from Baryn Futa’s point of view. He would like people to think of art as a time capsule of sorts. The art of a particular time puts us in touch with our ancestors and communicates to us in a way that nothing else can.
