Most would agree that art appreciation is a key element of every human society, but that art is too often taken for granted. That is what drives Baryn Futa's work in support of the fine arts, both as a benefactor and as a lover of fine art. He doesn’t like that brilliant artists are not appreciated enough to thrive, so he does as much as possible to rectify that situation.

Because Baryn Futa believes that the arts are a necessary and defining part of any culture, and that it is important to preserve for future generations, he does what he can to cultivate a love of the arts. The art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can, which means we owe it to our descendants to preserve as much art as possible for the future.

That makes art and art museums extremely important. Bryan now holds memberships in a great number of prominent art museums with impressive collections of their own, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum. As often as he can, Baryn loans pieces from his own substantial collection to museums because he wants more people to appreciate the arts the way he does.
