The BOMH Board of Directors is saddened to announce that it has become necessary to cancel ArtSmart 2020. Once the nature of this pandemic became clear, we rescheduled for a July date. But it appears now that even in July, trying to convene a conference will still not be a good idea for a variety of reasons.

We are now planning on ArtSmart 2021 to be held at Stoney Creek in Columbia on April 9-11, 2021. So please go ahead and Save The Date! Carol Edlund has agreed to join us in 2021 and the program for the conference will remain pretty much the same, so I’m leaving a lot of that information here (below) for now.

The Best of Missouri Hands Board knows the disappointment this announcement brings, and we share the sentiment. The Board has asked me to relay their wishes for everyone to remain safe and healthy so we can all be together in 2021.
