The mission of the Bottle Works is to inspire artistic passion, community connectivity, ethnic appreciation, and sustainable practice across generations.
Show us how the Legendary Steve Ditko inspired you!
The Bottle Works Ethnic Arts Center in Johnstown, PA, hometown of Spider-man co-creator, creator of Doctor Strange, and countless other comic book characters, Steve Ditko, in collaboration with Mr. Ditko’s family is hosting a Hometown Heroes-Steve Ditko Exhibit in our Main Gallery Space from July 15 – September 11, 2021.
The Ditko Inspired Art Auction
This your chance to own a piece of art from the Ditko “Inspired” Exhibit!
Originals, prints, posters, and books, we have a little bit of something for everyone. Over 30 pieces will be on the auction block, with more to be announced. There may even be some surprises from the actual Hometown Heroes-Steve Ditko Exhibit included!?!
