Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Lake Superior Art Glass is celebrating two years of business in downtown Duluth this weekend.

Members of the public lined up as early as 9 a.m. Saturday morning to sign up for free glass blowing courses and demonstrations offered by staff and guest artists.

As part of the celebration, drawings were held providing future free classes, gift certificates and merchandise to the lucky winners.

Featured artist Tony Scorza was also on site to show off his latest creations and take questions in preparation of a weekend–long display of his latest work.

Lake Superior Art Glass displays pieces from an average of sixty artists from across the country, contributing to a growing appreciation for arts and culture in the area.

"Folks are on their nightly stroll, maybe from dinner at Tycoon's over to a movie at Zeitgeist or Zinema," said owner Dan Neff. "We've got a great arts and culture district happening on this block here--kind of starting to deem it the arts district of downtown."

Neff says anyone wanting to learn more about the art of glass blowing is welcome to stop by whenever he's working in the window, sometimes even as late as midnight.
