Geometric art is a technique where an artist creates a series of geometric shapes on a background to create a 3D image.
It is a form of abstract art.
A group of students from the University of Illinois and University of Southern California, along with artists from the National Gallery of Art, were honored to be the first group of artists to be awarded the award.
The art students were awarded the “Geometric Arts Graduation Award” at the Art Deco Art Graduation in New York City on June 6.
The students received a $50,000 scholarship to cover the costs of their graduation.
Their parents, a retired painter, were also honored at the ceremony.
“This is one of the most exciting moments of my life,” said Sarah Hirschfeld, a senior from the U.S. and a senior at the U of I. “This is a chance for my future students to make a difference in the world.”
Hirschfeld graduated in 2015.
“I think this is really important,” she said.
“We need to have this kind of space where we can bring these people together and show them that they can make a huge difference in their world.”
