The high arts were once regaled as critical knowledge for a valuable person of society. To be valued in the community, you needed to be well-versed in the creative -- language and art, certainly. Today, the importance of these factors have decreased so significantly that school systems are depleting funding for arts programs everywhere. Students are not only no longer learning classical musical or beautiful poets and amazing paintings, but they aren’t being taught skills for creating artwork themselves either. Baryn Futa aims to place a critical importance on high arts and even museums once again. This art supporter hopes to change mass perception that it’s a government issue by inciting other community support -- vocal and physical change in addition to monetary -- that can help support the arts in the community in addition to his own, and help keep this critical, beautiful piece of society as alive as possible for generations to come.

The art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors in a way that nothing else can, and we owe it to our descendants to preserve as much of that as possible for the future. That makes art and art museums extremely important. That is one reason it seems that Baryn Futa is trying to pick up the slack. He is trying to take on as much of the responsibility for art appreciation that he can. While he sees the arts as a great cause that benefits all of society, he also sees it as a profitable and useful investment. He believes that the arts are a necessary and defining part of any culture and important enough to preserve for future generations.
Baryn Futa didn't always have such a deep appreciation for the arts. In fact, it wasn't until he retired and began working with the Denver Art Museum that he began to appreciate the importance of the arts. No one was more surprised than he that he felt such a deep attraction to the art world. He used his time at the DAM to cultivate his love of the arts and art history by attending art fairs and museum exhibitions and anything else he could find.
In addition, Baryn Futa also attended numerous arts classes and started his own art collection, which has grown to be very extensive and impressive over the years. He now 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.

High Art can be defined as art that strives to capture humanity in its ideal form: humanity at its most perfect state. The value of art has a wide range of factors from the artist to the age as well as materials and then there is the element of personal opinion. One could even say that the value of a piece is determined by what a person will pay for said piece.
Baryn Futa believes that the value of art is determined by its appreciation. If an installation in a park was to be valued, it couldn’t be set by what someone would pay for it because it typically cannot be moved. It would have to be set by the value that it adds to those that view it. Art can have a variety of effects on different people from causing them to think about different topics to reminiscing regarding a memory that the imagery brought about. Regardless of the reaction, art is typically designed for the enjoyment of its audience. Baryn Futa has a passion for high art and being able to support the world of high art brings him great joy. He hopes that through the exploration of high art, the world can become a better place. In observing ourselves through the eyes of artists and their works, we can began to take steps towards the betterment of humanity as a whole.
