Baryn Futa Gives Back

June 21, 2023
From the perspective of Baryn Futa, it’s not possible to overstate the importance of the arts on any society. Art establishes a society’s identity and it should be preserved for future generations. The arts are like a time capsule; the art of the past puts us in touch with our ancestors. Because of that, we owe it to our descendants to preserve as much current and past art as possible for the future. That makes art museums and art preservation extremely important as far as Baryn Futa is concerned. Because fine art represents what a society is, Baryn has a strong desire to preserve that for the ages. That is why he is interested in getting more people to appreciate the arts as much as he does.

That is the main reason Baryn Futa now has memberships in a great number of prominent art museums with impressive collections, including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and The Jewish Museum. It is also why he has developed and maintained such a large and impressive art collection himself and why he routinely loans his art to museums. Art defines society as it stands now and we owe it to our posterity to preserve art for everyone.

Baryn Futa and the Museum of Modern Art

March 20, 2021
To many, including fine arts appreciator Baryn Futa, New York City’s Museum of Modern Art is often considered the most influential museum display of modern art throughout the world. Located in New York City -- specifically in Midtown Manhattan -- the museum was first developed in 1929 by the wife of famed John D. Rockefeller, Jr., Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, as well as two of her friends. The family’s posh lifestyle and wealthy friends allowed it to thrive at that moment despite opening during the same time as the Wall Street crash.

The museum has flourished since opening. Today, it houses some of the world’s most eminent modern masterpieces, including Vincent van Gogh’s Starry Night and Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans is also among the collections, which are more than 150,000 pieces, not including millions of film stills and films.

Baryn Futa urges not only a sincere appreciation for these pieces so delicately collected and preserved for the world to see, but also the need to support the work accomplished by the Museum of Modern Art -- a place without which the community would not have access to these fine arts. Although MoMa is a private, non-profit organization, not every museum has the same luxury with the same significant operations budget. As Futa notes, even when viewing some of the world’s most notable masterpieces, it’s a time to reflect on arts completed everywhere and funding needed for even the smallest artists.

But now Futa is striving to detail the social impact that the arts has on community with hopes that cities everywhere will notice how critical artistic endeavors can be toward engagement and success.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have looked into this same topic as Futa. In their research, they discovered that higher civic engagement often goes hand in hand with an increased concentration of the arts in a community. The arts also help create more social cohesion in a city as well as attribute to an area’s poverty rates (which are typically lower) and child welfare (frequently higher). Baryn Futa has long understood the immense positive impact that the arts can have on kids, families and an entire community. The research from UPenn indicates the same, solidifying ideas that vibrant and active arts activities can improve an entire environment and the climate in which children are raised. Arts can lead to sweeping positive changes and better communities for residents of all ages.
