The Value of Art and Baryn Futa

October 18, 2017
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.
