The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, The Louvre in Paris, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Museo del Prado in Spain -- some of the world’s most popular museums that receive millions of guests per year. But not every museum is so lucky as to boast 6 million annual visitors and collections from Monet, Michelangelo and DaVinci as the National Gallery in London can. Artists and museums alike struggle to gain support and appreciation across global communities, which fine arts benefactor Baryn Futa recognizes and addresses. The life of an artist can be difficult, from not being able to finance projects to lacking the creative support to delve into art professionally. Futa strives to support these artistic contributions as much as he is able in addition to encouraging others to work alongside him in appreciation and financial assistance. The large and lavish locations such as the Van Gogh Museum or Museum of Modern Art may thrive despite decreased support, but others will not if individuals like Baryn Futa don’t help.

Building a career as an artist is a difficult task -- hence “starving artist.” As one artist stated on her blog, “Once you know that you are not going to make rent, you can’t really make art.” That’s where benefactors such as Baryn Futa come in. This fine arts appreciator not only seeks to discover budding, brilliant artists, but he holds a desire to support the development and growth of artists and museums who deserve a level of commitment toward surviving and thriving in the world of art.

Artists create no matter their circumstances -- despite working one or two jobs, despite having robust families, despite not finding the craft until late in life. Baryn Futa is there to support all artists with gifts and talents. Additionally, he hopes to help museums nurture their collections as well. Not every facility benefits from prospering budgets, but many wish to display beautiful artistry and exhibits for communities to experience. Futa recognizes this and remains committed to the growth of museums everywhere.

Art runs deep in many forms throughout society -- and should be a central component of life. Money shouldn’t dictate access and Futa hopes to open those doors for all, artists and viewers alike.
