The arts are far more than a great investment, they are also a great cause that benefits all of society. That is why Baryn Futa has invested in building a large art collection that is one of the most impressive anywhere. It’s also why he routinely loans his pieces to other collectors and museums and why he keep up memberships in many very prestigious and important art museums with their own impressive collections, such as the Guggenheim Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and The Jewish Museum, among others.
Above all else, much of what Baryn Futa does in support of the arts is borne out of a desire to get more people to appreciate the arts as much as he does. While almost everyone agrees in the abstract that arts is beautiful and that art appreciation is a key element of every human society, when it comes to actual action, there isn’t much. Too often, the arts is taken for granted. Baryn Futa’s work in support of the fine arts is built upon the idea that the most brilliant artists are not sufficiently appreciated. He finds the idea of a “starving artistry” to be abhorrent; all artists should be able to thrive, and not have to just scrape by.
