Making the Missouri Masterpiece

The 2016 Governor's Conference on Economic Development:
making of the Missouri Masterpiece 

For the 57th annual Governor’s Conference on Economic Development, we will look at ecodevo from a new artistic angle, from a space that has no limits or boundaries. Take the leap off the grid, off the canvas and join us in a new matrix—removing our hesitancy and opening our minds to new visions and ideas. Whether it is a sweet melody, a splash of vibrant color, the passion of a dreamer, or an atmosphere of energy, we will let the art of Creativity, Innovation and Discovery guide us as we together experience the making of the Missouri Masterpiece.
