At age 3, Dan Neff could identify every bird that visited his family’s feeder.Today, the 2008 graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth incorporates his love of nature into his glass studio in downtown Duluth. Lake Superior Art Glass sells glass artwork, offers classes, and provides studio space for artists. 

“We know every artist’s story, and we strive to make connections between the customer and the artist,” says Neff.

A former recipient of the Richard and Carol Flint Environmental Scholarship, Neff remains connected to UMD, working with students from the Labovitz School of Business and Economics to give them real-world business experience.
