Including artwork by Maurice MacGonigal, Norah McGuinness, Anne Butler Yeats and more, In the Midst of Masters examines the important, valuable and varied resource that is the Meath County Council Public Art Collection and how it can be used as a tool to help reduce stress and ease anxiousness through mindful engagement.
